The Run Down.

I am 21 years old from the wonderful state of New Jersey.

I took an interest in the Adobe Creative Cloud at just 14 years old, and it was my high school digital art teacher who encouraged me to pursue a career in the field. By the age of 16, I was designing graphics, posters, and apparel for my school.

Since attending college, I’ve worked with a variety of clientele. Through collaborating with start-ups, non-profits, public events, and established business, I’ve developed an ability to deliver visionary design consistently.

Education.

I began my studies at High Point University on a Presidential Scholarship with focuses in Graphic Design, Social Media Marketing, and Entrepreneurial Studies. I recently transitioned into online learning to create more time to pursue professional opportunities. I’m currently completing my Bachelor of Science in Digital Marketing and Social Media online with Johnson & Wales University. I am a Dean’s List recipient at both institutions.

Il Toro has been a great asset to the Prolific Growhouse Team. We were in search for a reliable and experienced designer for our cannabis company. Nick was recommended to me as the go-to guy for the job. He and his team have done tremendous work on our branding, website, and Instagram page. Il Toro brings consistency and creativity to the table which helps Prolific Growhouse brand itself and grow.
