    1. Graffiti artist when I was in middle school
    2. Tried to go to school for typography
    3. Ended up learning web design
    4. Currently a Product designer

    InitiallyI was a graffiti artist and with some ignorance I landed here. I tried to go to school for typography, but the classes were very technical. I later realized that what I really wanted to learn was calligraphy, or some sort of freedom of expression with letters.

    That l led to front-end dev and web design. Now I design for web and mobile. Never thought getting into trouble while I was young could lead to something positive for the rest of my life.

      I have a similar story. Not a dropout but expelled from art school because graffiti had completely disrupted life.

      That same interest for letters made me pursue typography which led to print design which eventually led to UI design.
