As long as I can remember I have been one of those nerdy kids that liked to draw. Back in elementary school I would draw in class when I should have been paying attention to the teacher, and in fifth grade it finally paid off when I drew a picture of a dynamite stick. I thought “Boy, do I hope I win this contest! I will be the coolest kid in school!” Well I won, and I didn’t become the super popular kid I was hoping for… but little did I know this was the beginning of the rest of my life. (And my t-shirt got printed.)
In middle school I joined the yearbook staff and started using early design software (PageMaker and TypeStyler) to create titles and page layouts, and then in eighth grade I had the honor of designing the cover of the yearbook! (How freakin’ cool!)
The next stop was the high school yearbook staff. For four years I devoted myself to my love of design, page layout, and photography. During my senior year I was the editor and tried some experimental things… or at least experimental for the yearbook crowd back in 1998. I had a hole cut in the front of the book, silhouetted images of people, and designed layouts that looked more like magazine articles. Did I mention it gave me a legitimate reason to skip my other classes and leave school for lunch?! That flame broiled DQ double cheeseburger was calling my name.
Somewhere along the way I also picked up HTML and started creating my own websites. I can’t really remember the orgin, but there is a tiny voice in my head that says it started in German class in highschool. (Funny now because I’m married to a German chick!) I think we had to build simple pages in German. Everything was center aligned and there were lots of animated gifs!
When I started going to GSU (Georgia State University) I don’t think I even knew what graphic design was. There weren’t all these technical schools running TV commercials advertising about joining the “coolest new field”! I thought I wanted to be a journalist… boy was I wrong! After 7 long years I finally graduated with my BFA in graphic design. The art scchol at GSU is really rockin’ and I highly recommend the design program to anybody interested in… well, design.
I can’t forget, during my 3rd year of university (back in 2001) I was given the opportunity to work for a web firm called Project8. It was really great and taught me a lot of stuff about the business side of the creative field. Thanks Robin for such a life changing opportunity!
I was born in Germany and grew up in a small town just outside of Frankfurt. When I was 11 my father accepted a job in Atlanta and our family made the big move across the pond to America. Because my parents knew they would not live in the U.S. forever they wanted to make the most of our time here by taking lots of road trips. Driving from the east coast through all the grand landscapes to the west coast really captivated me. The endless roads and farm fields with amazing cloud backdrops, the Grand Canyon with its enormous red holes, abandoned rusty cars in the desert, old ghost towns that were still trapped in the 19th century, the big hills of beautiful San Francisco, and the natural untouched beaches of Oregon. It was then, at the age of 14, that my father handed me his old 35mm Leica and I first experimented with taking snap-shots of the amazing sights I saw on our long journeys.
However, my exposure to art started long before my first real experience with photography. My parents have always been big art advocates and signed me up for various art classes ever since I was a 4-year old in Kindergarten. As I grew older my parents encouraged me to continue going to art classes where I tried out anything from cartoon drawing classes to ceramic classes. Eventually, at the age of 16, I found my way back to photography: darkroom classes were offered at the art center I attended after school. I became captivated with playing in the black and white darkroom where I found myself gazing into the developer tray as my image was slowly appearing on the paper.
I decided to take my hobby further, and after graduating from the Atlanta International School with the International Baccalaureate diploma and Bilingual diploma I was accepted into my first choice college: the University of Westminster in London, England. After three years of studies (and many exciting and fun memories from the city) I graduated and received my BA (Hons) in Photographic Arts.
After my graduation I was drawn back to my home town, Atlanta. (After all, my fiancé was waiting for me there.) I was able to join Patrick at Project8 where my teenage internet addiction proved itself to be useful in the web department. After two and a half years it was time to depart, and Patrick and I set up to start our own ventures with nuSpace Media in 2006. There is nothing like running your own business and it’s been exciting to watch our business and our relationship with our clients grow.
