Hi I’m . I’m a graphic designer, optimist, and storyteller based in California.
Ever since I can remember, growing up on a farm, I’ve been obsessed with stories, both reading those of others and creating my own. I would spend my time reading, writing, and drawing as a means to try and make these stories real.
As I got older this love of stories grew into a love of language, and is what led me to get my Bachelor of Arts in English at Santa Clara University, and then what made me look to master further at ArtCenter College of Design where I earned an Master of Fine Arts in Graphic Design. This love of storytelling across both rhetorical and visual language has now translated into my ability to turn these stories into a reality through strategic design research, typographic experimentation, and a holistic design praxis.
Design is a significant part of my life, but I make sure to sustain it with my love of the outdoors, travel, and my self-inflicted challenge to read 5 pieces of classical literature per year.
I’m open to doing pro bono, freelance work for QTPOC-owned small businesses or persons, in addition to my paid freelance services.
Drop me a line, I am always game to talk work, design, what I’m reading, or share what it was like growing up on an avocado farm.
