I have been designing and developing websites for four years while attending The Art Institute of Las Vegas, working at Questionableand doing several volunteer works.
I have found that I love the developer side of creation as much as I love the designer side.
At Questionable I found a passion for interactive media.
In the ever changing world of interactive media and visual design I have discovered a passion for creating and bringing life to these elements.
I have developed an insatiable desire to grow along with this world around me through continuing education whether inside a classroom or by the things and the people I surround myself with.

"For the short time that I had the pleasure, I knew Gail was a truly dedicated student-someone who wants to learn more than just what the degree was, she wanted to master the art.
Gail showed incredible fortitude, working on extra assignments to reinforce her skills, and always participated strongly in discussions-something that is appreciated both as a teacher and a manager.
I believe Gail's actions as a student are truly indicative of how she would be as a teammate and thus recommend her as a valuable asset to any team."
