I am a designer, social media strategist, marketer and all around creative problem solver. The development of my design work has been greatly due to my seven and a half years of experience working at 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 in the Santa Monica Mountains, or cooking up a new recipe. Although time away from the screen is important, I enjoy scouring the internet for inspiring new design inspiration.
