CC.Cressey Graphic Design • UI Design
How did I become an optimistic, spiritual, over-thinker, creator, giver, and patient
observer? One who lives to share happiness and truth—and design things that wow and
pay it forward?
It was my Uncle Jesse that lead the way in saving me from the streets of Compton.
Even though he could not walk and was quadriplegic and ventilator-dependent, he guided
me as a father would. He taught me to never be afraid to fail—and to dream with no
limits—because he faced limitations every day. With the further guidance of my mentor
Andrea, I now live my dream as a thought-provoking versatile graphic designer—eager
to inspire, innovate, and create change.
