I'm a Roger Williams University graduate that is currently working as the Creative Services Assistant here at WaterFire Providence. I have been gaining knowledge and experience in graphic design for over 9 years now, and my interest in it has grown into full-blown passion. Outside of graphic design some of my other hobbies and interests include photography, art, nature, animals, and music. A fun fact about me is that I have a variety of pets from small animals such as hamsters and guinea pigs to reptiles such as geckos and bearded dragons.
