I'm a 19 year old living out of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. When I was very young, my parents gave me their old computer. It wasn't connected to the internet, so I couldn't do much, but it did have one very cool program on it -- Microsoft Paint. Whenever I was by myself, I would spend my time creating little designs that I thought at the time were very "creative" and "cool". I must have created hundreds of these. I called them "Character Drawings", before I knew what graphic design was. If I were to release these now, it would be extremely embarrasing, but everyone starts somewhere.
After I had improved more, I had a youth pastor that saw my interest and asked me to start designing slides for him for announcements and sermon series' and such. This was the first time that I really realized that I could use my hobby for God's glory. Now, I've expanded into motion design and filmmaking. I'm a youth pastor now, and I use my own products in my church here at home.
