The Polishing Center
I participated in a 14 week advertising workshop this past summer wherein myself and 9 young creatives met weekly at various advertising agencies, design firms and photo studios to meet with industry professionals and buff our portfolios. The workshop was run like a real agency, giving us the opportunity to create complete ad concepts and presentations for two local clients.
It was a tremendous lesson in copywriting, design, professionalism, and selling. My role in our group primarily involved art direction and graphic design.

Print layout design has been a passion of mine since my sophomore year of high school when I decided to make the transition from staff writer to Arts&Entertainment editor on my high school’s award-winning, nationally recognized newspaper, The InPrint. Since then, Adobe InDesign and Photoshop have been my virtual playground. I love to create layouts that draw the reader in without detracting from content.
