Ever since I can remember, I have always had an interest in art and working with my hands. When children around me were obsessed with playing on their Super Nintendo or Gameboy I was rummaging through my box of Legos to build yet another one of my odd creations, or I was sketching some sort of creature on the back of my notebook to entertain myself.
Fast forward to today, and I am a third year Visual Communications major at Farmingdale State University, and have been an intern at the DNA Learning Center since September 2007. It's an opportunity I am extremely grateful to have and, between my co-workers and my professors, I am learning and honing my skills at an incredibly fast pace. Sometimes things can get a little hectic, as do all jobs from time to time, but I never get tired of it. Whether I am working on a print job, designing the look of a website or creating a new flash animation, I know that the reason I never get tired of it is because this is something I genuinely love to do, and I wouldn't want to be anywhere else.
