I realized my potential

The decision to leave my job during one of the worst economic climates in history was definitely daunting and made me feel uneasy. However, the environment that I was giving up was stifling, and felt like a step back and not the step forward that I had anticipated when I left the previous job of 5 years. After attending various meetings and being part of a new AIGA chapter launch, I soon gained the confidence that I could make it on my own as an independent designer.

Fast-forward a year and I’m still playing the game my way and celebrating the recent accomplishments of winning 2 Gold Awards at our local design awards show and presentation.
