The York Academy of the Arts: Like any school, the YA was sort of what you made of it. It was small–only 30 of us in the graphic design program, so there was a an excellent rapport with the instructors. They knew our skill sets and personalities quite well.

Country of origin and what drew me to Pittsburgh:

Carlisle, PA. While in college, I took an internship in Pittsburgh (my Aunt Lois and Uncle Henry lived there and I could stay with them for free.) Upon graduation that firm offered me a job, and I’ve been here since. I have loved this city from my very first view of the skyline.
