About Me

I'm an art director, visual designer, and a hippie at heart from Southern California. I have a passion for creating user-centered designs that are intuitive, usable, and modern. I believe in the powers of clean design and matcha.

I began my career as a graphic designer, and my experience has helped me evolve into a solid multidisciplinary designer. My skills include digital design, UI design, wireframing and prototyping, graphic design, print, retail and environmental design, photography and photo editing, 2D animation, and video editing.

In 2017, I partnered with illustrator and designer David Escobar in founding Kaand Creative Co. A bite-sized creative agency that works closely with brands on a variety of fun and innovative projects.

When I'm not working, I'm usually learning new programs to expand my skills, or collaborating with other artists in creating rejected New Yorker cartoons. I'm an occasional contributor to the 1th Collective, and my short fiction can be found in their annual Zine.
