Summary

Hello, my name is Benjamin Stevens although I prefer to go by Benn. I became interested in design work during my sophomore year in high school. I was in a drawing class discussing some drawings with my teacher when he moved on to discussing what I wanted to do with my future. After listening to me he quickly suggested that I try my hand at some graphic design work the next year. Under the guidance of one of my favorite high school teachers I came to quickly love the programs and what I could do with them and have never looked back.

I try to learn new skills every time I get on my laptop. Currently my favorite program to use is Photoshop, although when I learn new tricks in another program i will most likely say that that one is my favorite. I am currently teaching myself how to sketch in Photoshop with a pen and tablet and look forward to what type of art I can come up with in that style.
