Where are you from?
Chester Springs, Pennsylvania
Where did you go to grade school?
Owen J. Roberts
What are you involved in at Malvern?
Ice Hockey. I sort of consider myself involved with the Blackfriar Chronicle because I do a lot of graphic design work, but not technically [a part of it].
What are your other hobbies?
A lot of hockey. Other than that, it’s just hanging out. I enjoy nature.
How did you get involved with graphic design?
When I was in fifth or sixth grade, I just randomly started doing some sort of photoshop work because it seemed fun, and that’s how it started. Then I took Graphic Design I here, and that really started everything for me. I’ve been doing it ever since then.
What do you want to do with graphic design in the future?
Hopefully, I actually plan on starting my own business. I have a few people who are on board with that.
What would the business do?
I’m not one hundred percent sure on that yet. My dad owns a security business, so I might do something along those lines but with graphic design. It’s hard to make just a straight business for graphic design, but I think for the most part, that will be a big part of it.
Which work that you have made are you the most proud of?
A lot of the work I’ve done this year for the Blackfriar Chronicle, I’ve been pretty proud of. Compared to last year and years before that, this year I really stepped up and did much more work and spent more time on it.
What’s a project that you’d most want to take on it the future?
There’s a lot of projects that end up in cities that end up on the side of a bus or the side of those little things you go under for bus stops— just like anything that’s shown out in the city that a lot of people would see.
What are your goals for your senior year?
I hope there’s a Graphic Design II course here. If not Ms. Plows and I spoke about me being her teacher’s assistant for one of her Graphic Design I classes. Hopefully, [I will] just get a lot of graphic design work in, commit to college for it, and see what’s in store for next year.
