Random Fact About Yourself: Since the age of 4, I grew up raising and rescuing Diamondback Terrapins with my Mother’s non-profit conservation group The Terrapin Institute. I can still vividly remember the days I would go to hop in the shower only to find that a handful of turtles had already claimed the tub. From fostering the hatchlings the moment they emerged from their eggs to releasing the fully-grown adults in to the wild, the time spent with these animals absolutely shaped the person I am today; an avid lover of nature who isn’t afraid to get some dirt on his jeans. I WILL stop traffic to escort a turtle off the road.

Unofficial Background: As a lover of outlandish and off-the-wall forms of expression, my path was discovered at a young age when I first got my hands on an iron-on transfer making kit, I soon began creating all my own attire. Accompanied by my adoration for all things different, whether it was clothing, art, or music, I knew I wanted to go the creative route. After a few years of experimentation with different courses and job titles, it became very obvious that graphic design was the field for me. The fact that I get to do what I love in my hometown, with some really incredible people is just an added bonus.
