a b o u t



i am a los angeles-based visual designer who specializes in ux/ui design, brand identity + strategy, and copy writing + editing. my oeuvre reflects a penchant for problem solving and storytelling using human-centered approaches that are articulated through structured frameworks, nuanced aesthetics, and strong attention to detail. although my skills can be used in a variety of creative capacities, i consistently endeavor to deliver results that are subtle, self-aware, respectful, and engaging.

a creative individual for over 20 years, i first began taking studio fine art lessons at the tender age of 7 and did so continuously through adolescence. that invaluable experience allowed me to develop an acute artistic sensibility at an impressionable age—a savvy that remains with me to this day. upon graduating high school, i studied architecture for 5 years before deciding to pursue a new path in the visual arts.

i hold a bachelor of fine arts (bfa) degree in communication from otis college of art and design, where i majored in graphic design and minored in advertising design.
