I am a grahic designer here in Des Moines, Iowa. I graduated with a dregee from UNI in Graphic Design and Painting (my true passion).<br /><br />I was diagnosed with celiac disase May 2007 exactly 2 months after my mother passed away. She struggled with breast cancer for 5 years that then turned to terminal bone cancer six after. She is truely in a better place. And i know that anything i am going through now is in no comparrison to what she had to go through. <br /><br />one of the many things that keeps me going and keeping my head up in life!
