Background

Summary

I love all things creative. I aim to create art every day, whether it’s through design, hand-lettering or videography. I have spent most of my life in San Luis Obispo, CA, but recently relocated to Carlsbad, CA. I graduated from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo majoring in Graphic Communication and concentrating in Design Reproduction Technology (how to take a conceptual design and turn it into a finished product). I have gained a well-rounded understanding of various print processes as well as hands-on experience completing print and digital media projects from start to finish. Yes, I’ve worked on a printing press! My work experience has prepared me to take on any type of task whether its creating animations for social, laying out a 700+ product catalog, or making edits to the HTML/CSS of a website. I push myself to learn new skills any chance I get.
