It all started with my love for graphic design.
In my career I started out as a graphic designer then became a marketing manager. However I having always done my own interiors (and for others) and fell passionately in love with architecture as my interests matured and boredom set in. This has led me to a career in interior design which I’ve come to love because it allows me to combine all my interests; architecture, graphic design, photography, furniture design, and marketing into one nice compatible family. Everyone tells me to make a niche but how can I give up one area of design for another? It’s like choosing one child over another, impossible. Combined with an interest in psychology and always curious about why we do what we do, I feel so fortunate to wake up every morning and have something to look forward to.
Which leads me to this fabulous article about other designers who transformed their careers. Enjoy your career and be especially thankful if it’s a creative one!

So when Hank, a graduate student in the school of architecture,
received his instructions for his final project, he knew exactly what
he wanted to do. He turned to Craigslist and bought a bus for $3,000.
I just love this story and everything it represents. I wish Hank luck
in his new found adventure.
