OBJECTIVE
My ultimate goal in the Graphic Design field is to run a business within the music industry, providing graphics for albums, merchandise, banners, web sites and any other applications that may arise. I am working to obtain my MFA in Graphic Design through the Academy of Art University's online program to allow me to have greater career options in the future as well. I will be entering my third year of study through the AAU program this fall. My first step is to get in the door at a graphics company to learn more about the trade and gain experience in a hands on environment. I want nothing more than to pursue graphic design to the fullest extent and put my skills to work. I am really excited to see where this profession can take me and am willing to put in the extra effort to make it.
