About Me

  • I am originally from Youngstown, Ohio. When I am not dedicating my life to design, I enjoy film, online shopping my soul away, and watching Vine threads on Twitter. I aspire to have a design job in a fashion/beauty related field. When I'm not busy doing school projects, I am busy being a brand representative for Glossier and Rent The Runway. I also love my three cats, watching random videos on Youtube, and my daily cold brew coffee. You probably will not see me without an iced coffee in my hand.

    "I did my best, and my best is good enough" -Hannah Beachler

  • Why did you choose VCD?
    I wanted to challenge myself, knowing how hard the fundamental courses were.

  • What inspired you to be a graphic designer?
    Design is a platform that we, as creatives, have a voice. We can create with purpose. That to me, is more important than absolutely anything. Creating a story with your design is not just for the cool design pitch. You get to see your clients story come to life. Whether that be in a website design, logo design or simply a t-shirt design. Design for reason; for passion.

  • What is the luckiest thing that has ever happened to you?
