I am a graphic design professional and photographer with more than 10 years of combined experience. I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in studio art from the University of North Carolina at Pembroke, where I first met longtime friend and mentor Dr. John Antoine Labadie. This was a turning point in my life, as the meeting forged a lifelong passion for art and set me on a career path in creative design. My career expanded when I met my next mentor, George Joell, and began developing my talents as a photographer.
