as a designer, i'm especially passionate about creating
completely custom brands that tell a unique story. my
expertise lie in full brand identities, website design
& above all my one true love, print collateral.
as a person, i'm passionate about gender equality, mexican
food, travel & golden retriever puppies. as a native of
san diego & previous north shore resident, i'm happiest
in warm climates by the coast. playing and listening to
live music has always been my therapy & one day i hope
to find myself at a florence & the machine concert. i
try to keep myself together but you can usually find me
laughing at things that aren't meant to funny.
