Profile

Ever since graduating from Art Center College of Design with a BFA in Illustration I've spent my career as a creative problem solver. I've worked with several boutique and start up companies as their sole designer, as well as taught and mentored on a one-on-one level. These experiences cultivated my skills across several roles, responsibilities, and cross-department needs. My strong understanding of composition, color theory, hierarchy and the power of narrative always inform the work I do, while my curiosity and desire to learn and grow as a creative keeps me at the forefront of developing my skill, staying on the cutting edge of developing trends and styles. It also keeps me well informed to the larger social movements and talking points that matter to our society as a whole.
