I would like to introduce myself and why I have joined GDF. I am originally from Liverpool,UK but have been in the USA for just over 25 years. My background is mainly management but I have always followed my artistic passions since I was 11 (musician, photographer, drawing, watercolour, cooking) but really never took the steps to follow any of these professionally (except music & cooking). I lost my job in January due to Covid and have struggled to find anouther job (mostly because I don’t want to go into management again) and so my wife suggested graphic design. I have done some research and I feel this will be a good fit for me even though I am a lot older now (55)
I am now looking into online courses but no schools as I just cant afford it and don’t have that much time to invest so I am on the hunt (skillshare looks good and is in my price range)
Thanks for reading and I look forward to being part of the community.
