About the Artist

I have been artistic for as long as I can remember. As a child, I spent hours drawing, taking photographs, writing stories and poems, and building with LEGOs. In elementary school, I could often be found sitting somewhere during recess with a sketchbook and pencil. In high school, I learned how to design and build websites, and I also found a passion for theater.

I attended Southern Utah University, where I studied Information Systems and Web Design. I graduated in 2008 with a BS degree in Information Systems with a Graphic Arts emphasis.

I have been employed full-time with LearnKey, an online self-paced training company, since 2006. Since February 2014, I have been in charge of LearnKey’s websites and social media accounts, as well as designing most of their marketing materials.

I currently hold industry certifications in Adobe Dreamweaver, Illustrator, InDesign, and Photoshop. I have also authored a course on Dreamweaver, and been involved in several trainings to help teachers become Photoshop certified.

A complete list of my badges and certifications can be found on Badgr.

About Artistic Imposter Design

I started Artistic Imposter Design in November 2007 as an outgrowth of a portfolio website I had built for a web design class.

When I first attended college, I was there on a theater scholarship. I had just turned 21 and I quickly realized the passion which fueled my acting in high school had burned away with the passing of my teenage years. The two years I spent in Northern California between high school and college had changed me, and I no longer had a desire to eat, sleep, and breathe theater.

After changing my field of study several times, I began taking art classes to study web design. My eighth grade art class was over a decade behind me, so in many ways I felt inferior to my classmates, most of whom had been studying art their entire lives. I felt like an imposter who didn’t really belong with them, and Artistic Imposter Design was born.
