How Did You Break Into The Industry / Your First Job
Being a design student and minoring in marketing I began to realize how both genres of careers coincide with one another. So, while in school I joined a few organizations pertaining to these fields and the one that impacted my life most was Adhoc/ AAF because it was a class that joined the art and communications student to form an agency and based on what the company wanted to enhance within the company so, we worked collectively together in order to accomplish the final project as well as compete with other universities within our region. I participated in two competitions and each time I became more intrigued and fascinated to see how visions come to life while working with a team from different backgrounds. My first jon out of college was working as a merchandiser at Crate & Barrel. Even though it wasn't particularly a design job I learned a lot about visualization and how certain placement of products stimulates the way people buy. All things such as color font choice, placement, and the whole psychology of shopping helped me visual how people shop. These different experiences I know will help me moving forward towards the career that I will receive in the future.
Long Term Career Goal
My long term career goal is to create a space where creatives from all walks of life come together to contribute ideas and tap into the imagination to bring a startup, large corporation, etc. vision to life. But in a way that will change the game within that industry.
