I am a designer, digital media strategist and all around creative problem solver. I love all types of design and enjoy the challenges that each type of design brings. The development of my design work has been greatly due to my almost eight years of experience working on the USC Marketing team. In 2020 I left USC to work on print and digital design for the LA Times.

I graduated from the University of Southern California in 2014 with a Bachelor's Degree in Design and finished Masters of Science in Digital & Social Media in 2018. 

When I'm not designing, I spend my free time at Disneyland, hiking with my furbaby or trying a new recipe. Although time away from the screen is important, I enjoy scouring the internet for inspiration.
