About Me

So, who is this mysterious Torli Roberts that runs Make it Count, and has been crazy enough to do so for almost ten years?

Well, first things first, Torli Roberts is a synonym I started using way back in 2002, when the internet wasn't such a trusting place. My real name is Marie, and you can get to know me better through my blog, Humblebee & Me. I'm a 20-something graphic designer, based out of Calgary, Canada, where it is cold for a good portion of the year. I earned my degree (a Bachelor of Design Honours) from the York University/Sheridan College Joint Programme in Design in Toronto, Ontario.

I've always loved the Titanic. I can remember studying bouyancy in the second grade and being asked to make something that would float out of a lump of plastecine. I made the Titanic. Unsurprisingly, it sunk like a rock.

When the film came out I was quickly enamoured with it. That turned to a full-blown obsession pretty quickly, and hasn't stopped since. I started up Make it Count while I was in Junior High, and in the process learned a lot about graphic design, HTML, and web design, ultimately shaping my career choices. I think that's pretty cool.

While I wasn't exactly great at maintaining this site through the tail end of High School and University, I'm back with more free time and a greater understanding of all things online. I've scaled back the time commitment this site requires, and I'm enjoying getting to know Make it Count again. I can't wait for April 2012, when the release of Titanic 3D will spark (or rekindle) a love of Titanic in (hopefully) millions of people.
