Technically I am a North Carolina native as I was born in Wilmington. My family moved to a small town in Southeastern Virginia, Franklin when I was very young, so my dad could work at the big paper mill there. Franklin is where I grew up and went to high school (Go Broncos!). After High School I attended Elon University (or Elon College as it was known then).
I majored in communications at Elon, but as with a lot of young adults, I was really un-decided as to what I wanted to do after I graduated so I started out in the medical billing field doing customer service. I soon found out what I did NOT want to do with my career, so back to school I went to the School of Communication Arts (now Living Arts College) to study graphic design.
I have been in the web field for many years now, but there is always a new skill to learn such as Angular JS, Node JS etc. which I am currently in the process of mastering.
