I graduated from Philadelphia University with a Bachelor's degree in Industrial Design in May 2005. I have spent the past year pursuing all of my passions from industrial design to graphic design, as well as, tennis. I have come to the realization that design is my first true love and am pursuing a full time career in the field. I believe that my dedication to all that I have done in the past year proves my determination as a person and my work demonstrates my design ability.
