What made you want to be part of AIGA? When I was accepted into the program, I realized that I needed a way to learn my professional skills along with my technical skills. AIGA has been a great way to do that. I have been given so many opportunities to network, learn new skills, and meet other talented designers.
If you could have any super power, what would it be and how would you use it? I would have the power of Technopathy. I would infiltrate computers and delete the comic sans font file.
What made you chose graphic design to be your major? Before I came to Oregon State I was working at a small credit union in downtown Portland as their marketing assistant—I was designing their newsletter, web banners, brochures, posters and more. After a few years of doing that, I knew I could be better. I decided my best option was to go back to school and learn skills that you don’t always learn on the job. I definitely made a good choice coming here.
