I knew I’d found the perfect career path when I was first introduced to graphic design in college. I taught myself PhotoShop and InDesign over a particularly boring summer and put my new skills to good use, working with the campus chapter of the International Student Association. I realized that I’d get to solve problems from a design perspective, almost like a puzzle. Now, at Enarche I get to use those same skills to transform our clients’ ideas into design materials.
As a designer, I’m always looking for ways to grow and learn to improve how my designs communicate with their viewer. I like collaborating with my coworkers, who share my interests and passion. They always encourage me to do my best, and when they like a design, it makes my day. My favorite quote from the Dalai Lama sums up why I do what I do, “The purpose of our lives is to be happy.”

The skills I use at work serve me well in my personal time, too. I own a small candle making company that allows me to stay creative while trying out new design ideas. Like with graphic design, I’m completely self-taught, taking up the hobby after visiting a Christmas market and realizing that there wasn’t anything stopping me from making my own candles. The roadblocks I run into mirror many of the challenges I solve at work, so it keeps me in a creative mindset. Plus, my candles help our offices smell amazing.
