Hello, my name is Rachel Choi. I am based in Michigan and have a passion for bringing good design to life.
As far back as I can remember I have always been infatuated with art. Starting with drawing on my grandmother with markers to teaching myself HTML/CSS to make LiveJournal and Myspace layouts, I still love to make and now my path has led me here.
