I am Brazilian by birth, American by heart, a curious designer, former student and a proud mother of a happy toddler. My love for graphic design started at an early age, even before she knew what graphic design entailed. I used to copy logos from the ads on her Dad’s magazines and used to spend all my allowance as a child on fancy drawing pens. The UNLV BS in Graphic Design and Media program has made my dream come true. Nothing beats the chance to work doing what you love while getting paid for it. Sometimes I have to pinch myself.
