i am a los angeles-based marketing communications professional who specializes in visual design and copywriting for both inbound and outbound marketing channels.
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 25 years, i first began taking weekly 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, becoming well-versed in critical design concepts such as scale, proportions, and compositional arrangement. upon graduating high school, i studied architecture for 5 years before deciding to pursue a new path in the visual arts and marketing.
i hold a bachelor of fine arts (bfa) degree in communication arts from otis college of art and design, where i majored in graphic design and minored in advertising design. currently, i am pursuing two post-baccalaureate certificates in general business studies concentrated on marketing and finance.
