MY KNOWLEDGE LEVEL IN SOFTWARE
I started playing around on Adobe Photoshop in the 10th grade. As soon as I clicked that magic wand, I never put it down. I grew my skills and continued to teach myself beyond the graphic art class I took in 10th grade.
In 2011 I started working for my church as an administrative assistant. Several months later, my manager discovered that not only did I know my way around photoshop, but that I was pretty good. And that was the beginning of my path to where I am today. I continued to challenge myself, stay up-to-date on the new features and abilities of photoshop and in the end of 2017, I began teaching myself Adobe Illustrator.
Today, I not only work my dream 9-5 job as a creative director for a local Long Beach company, but I have also launched my freelance business.
My business is targeted for entrepreneurs and small businesses. I offer Easy platform (WIX and Squarespace and some WordPress) webs design, logo design, website and social media content photography, and graphic design; basically a one-stop-shop for all of one’s designing needs.
As a creative, when I was stuck at jobs that did not allow me to fully tap into my creativity I often felt suffocated. I have also faced a lot of struggles finding confidence to step into who I am as a creative. I doubted myself a lot and always felt that I didn’t have the “right” to call myself a designer or photographer. It took over 15 years to grow into my talents and my confidence.
