Three years ago I was one year out of college and working for a start up with inconsistent pay. I started following the tutorials on psdtuts to improve my skills, hoping it would open a door to a better job. Through psdtuts, I found graphic river, and thought it would be a great motivator to improve my skills and earn some extra cash, so that’s what I did :)

Since then, I’ve gotten freelance work from here, and built a nice portfolio from that freelancing and my graphic river portfolio. I’m now working at one of the most respected design studios in Atlanta. I’m so grateful for the Envato marketplaces and the opportunity Graphic River has given me to build my skillset, connect with other designers + clients around the world, and help me pay off my student loans.

So, a big thank you Envato for the author feature this week, and for having such a positive impact on my career!
