When I graduated high school in 2008, you were the coolest kid on the block if you had a Razor flip phone. That same year I joined the Marine Corps and served for four long years. After getting my discharge, I returned to civilian life and found that everyone had a smart phone or device that they couldn't separate themselves from. I was still of a mindset where conversations were done in person or sometimes on a phone and texting was limited to 300 a month. Society had shifted in a direction that I was not familiar with and struggled with having any form of interpersonal interactions. This experience fuels and directs my work towards the technological advanced world we find ourselves in.
