My interest in design
was born during my youth in a city lovingly known as “The Heart of the Inland Empire.” That moniker is the result, as I was taught in fifth grade, of not only the city’s centrality to the region, but also it’s geographic shape. My home town is a sort of blocky, shape-shifting, ever-incorporating valentine made mostly of sage, concrete, and ponderosa pine. That’s right: Spokane, Washington is where it all happened. It was there that I began to play with computers as well. From using Print Shop on my Parents’ Apple IIe, to my first digital drawings with Aldus Freehand on their Mac several years later, It was the beginning of something great. I owe a lot of my current computer skills to the availability of those tools, so thanks Mom and Dad for the chance.
