Having grown up with a computer in my home since day one, it was inevitable for an obsession with electronics to be engrained into who I am. Also from a young age, I’ve had a fascination with learning how things work and how others created things. This led me to disassembling anything I could get my hands on and sometimes being able to put them back together. I had discovered in myself an innate passion for creating as well as artistic talent. All of this culminated into eventually attending the Memphis College of Art and earning my BFA in digital media. Through all of this I have had the chance to create videos, photographs, websites, animations, video games, D.I.Y. electronics, and anything else I set my mind to. Now I have a full time position as a web developer at Stamp, where I get to challenge myself in learning something new everyday while at the same time creating products that people will use and interact with.
