Push yourself and leave your comfort zone.


My road in life has been direct.
Gained a high school diploma and realized that was not a job I prefer.
Enrolled in a university for tourism and dropped out after one year.
Worked in a couple of restaurants including our family restaurant.
My brother working as a graphic designer was an inspiration for me to take up graphic design.
Started a one-year graphic design course at the IT Academy and graduated.
Worked as a freelance graphic designer for 4 years on platforms—such as 99designs and Upwork —on a wide range of projects in various industries.
Decided to stop freelancing and get a full-time job.
An opportunity appeared at the Kontrast design studio, where I work as a junior graphic designer on different projects including Roadtrip Nation.
