As children usually do, I had always imagined what I would be doing when I grew up. When I was about 12 years old, I had sat down at my family table and drew pictures of myself in various uniforms working in different jobs. There was me as a doctor, a firefighter, a police officer, a soldier, a carpenter, etc. I had spread out all my drawings and looked at each one of them—then suddenly, it hit me! My passion to become an artist was born that very day.
Many years later, I would actually fulfill one of those drawings by enlisting in the US Army. That decision allowed me to later attend UMass Dartmouth and achieve my bachelor degrees in both Illustration and Graphic Design. To this day, the 12 year-old inside me is still very alive and passionate about drawing and design.
