Calvin’s Story

Calvin grew up in the Pacific Northwest in Spokane, WA before he moved to Phoenix, Arizona. He spent a good portion of his elementary and teen years running multiple companies including a pet sitting business in elementary school, a shoe shining company in middle school and a photo scanning company in high school. Through trial and error Calvin developed entrepreneurial skills at a young age.

Calvin discovered his passion for design after getting his hands on Adobe Creative Suite 6 in exchange for developing marketing collateral for his dad’s company his senior year of high school. Since this moment, Calvin has been aggressively developing his skills to compete with top level designers.

After moving to Arizona, Calvin attended Scottsdale Community College to further his skills in graphic design. He organized multiple graphic design shows and presented at the Western Regional Honors Conference on the topic of creative branding during his time at SCC. His experience led him to build and strengthen a brand of a $52 million dollar healthcare agency (Jewish Family & Children’s Service of AZ) that hired him before he graduated SCC. 

After he graduated SCC, Calvin enrolled at ASU to finish his bachelors degree in Nonprofit Leadership and Management while working full time at Jewish Family & Children’s Service. He worked freelance gigs on the side to pay for his school which gave him additional experience.

Calvin is currently working as a senior designer (contract) for USAA and loving it. He is taking on select clients for branding and design work. Feel free to check out his resume or connect with him on Linkedin to learn more.
