My name is Christy and I am currently a Master of Arts Candidate in Interactive Media at Elon University. Over the past few years I have worked across many areas: Web Development, User Research, User Experience Design, User Interface Design, Graphic Design, and Project Management. Here you will find some of my best and favorite work. Thanks for checking out my portfolio!
It all started with illustration- a skill that I did not know I had or that I loved until my sophomore year of high school. Once I began illustration I realized that this was a skill I could carry with me throughout my life but I never realized quite how far it would take me!
Initially when I got to college I studied Hospitality Management and boy was I wrong in that decision. Following that first choice, I tried about two other majors and eventually landed in James Madison's School of Media Arts and Design(SMAD). That is where I discovered that I could design things to be just as beautiful as art and serve a great purpose in the world.
In my second year in the "SMAD" program I saw a flyer for an internship with JMU Football. I decided to send an email and to date that was one of the best decisions I have ever made. I was hired within a few days to work for the JMU Football team as a Creative Media Intern and I got to practice illustration, graphic design, and discovered my love for photography.
One year later, I decided to apply to my current program at Elon University to grow my skills in interactive media as a whole. Every day gets a little more challenging and a little more exciting but I can't wait to see where the future takes me!
