Hi I’m
. I’m a graphic designer, writer, and collaborator based in California.

 

My design philosophy is based in the principles of sustainability, socially ethical human-centered design, and deeply researched strategy. Basically, it’s not enough for me to just make stuff look pretty.


I hold a BA in English from
and am pursuing an MFA in Graphic Design from
. I have worked as a Graphic Designer for 
in Los Angeles,
, and
in San Francisco.



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 also open to doing pro bono, freelance work for QTPOC-owned and differently-abled small businesses, or persons.

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.
