In 2013, I graduated with a Fine Arts degree and took my first job as Junior Graphic Designer at a small, boutique ad agency. While there, my Creative Director told me to never let anyone else find out that I knew how to code – he warned me that if they knew I could do it, I'd be stuck doing it forever and never get to focus on print design again. I ignored his warning; turns out, he was completely right, but I've never been happier.

I currently work as a developer advocate on a wonderful team where I help people build beautiful and user-friendly interfaces for their web applications, design and maintain component libraries, and desperately attempt to stop back-end devs from writing any more CSS.
