Everyone loves a good origin story, right? Peter Parker’s spider bite, VH1’s “Before They Were Stars,” Meghan Markle (pre-princess). Those stories make us believe that anything is possible—and it is! My design journey began around junior high. I used to create hand-drawn ‘artwork’ for and with friends in the form of notecards and letters that we’d give each other randomly and frequently throughout the school year. I also loved technology, although at that time we only had my older brother’s Tandy computer — do you remember those? I would spend hours drawing in Paintbrush, which later became known as just Paint. Needless to say, I knew early on that whatever I chose to do in life had to be artistic. Where did you get your start?
