I began my studies at The University of Missouri - Kansas City with a focus in photography. Taking as many photography courses as they offered, I fell in love with the analogue, hands-on side of the fine art medium. Transitioning into graphic design at Southern New Hampshire University Online has not only allowed me the flexibility of exploring new places and working full time, but has brought a fresh element to my photography by giving it a newfangled purpose. 


As I'm currently studying the in's and out's of the graphic design world, learning new programs, coding and different design aesthetics, I have found that my goal for this degree is to enter the field of UI and UX design. Web design is a quickly growing area of the trade and it utilizes so many facets of what we are being taught. I'm eager to learn what I need to become a UX/UI Designer and to continue growing and learning within the field after graduation.
