I'm incredibly proud of where I came from. Had it not been for the community I was raised in, or the Midwest work ethic I was able to build my foundation on, I have no idea where I would be today. Through various community scholarships I was able to pay for my college tuition in full. Thus, I worked a part time job to fulfill my dream of traveling the world. After visiting my first country, I caught the "travel bug" — the rest is history.
I'm now working on a series of illustrations to commemorate the 12 countries I traveled to during my undergrad. Enjoy!
