Now, how should I start telling you about me... well the beginning, of course!! I grew up in Richmond, Virginia but am currently living in Washington, D.C. I have gypsy blood running through me, from my sweet mom, so I'm not sure how long I'll last here (but I really am LOVING it so far). For now, I scratch that itch with travel! Oh what I would do to be back in the country side of Italy (sigh).
Moving onto how that person above (me) made it into a career of design, oh boy. I have always been a visual person; the aesthetic around me LITERALLY impacts my mood, for better or for worse. If I am not surrounded by organized, aesthetically pleasing decor, I can't stop thinking about it until I fix it. A bit ridiculous, I know. So clearly, that need for visual appeal runs through me.
Back to how this all fits in my path to design - in college I majored in psychology. I initially wanted to become a psychology professor, and while it is still one of my dream paths, I realized one person doesn't have to have ONE dream path. I explored multiple forms of artistic outlets, such as photography. But at 23, when I started designing for fun, I KNEW I had hit another dream path.
All this is to say, you're not too young, or too old, you didn't waste your time along another path. It is not just ok to pursue a new path, it's AMAZING. It takes courage, passion, and (worst of all) risk. The fact that I am already so far along a dream path of mine is INSANE - I get to help and create for other business owners, and it makes me so so happy to wake up to that everyday.
