About Me

  • I am an all around art loving designer who comes from a background in fine arts. I love all things adventure and anything that lets me be creative.

  • Senior quote:
    "No matter where you go, there you are." -Confucius

  • Why did you choose VCD?
    I wanted to dive into an artistic field that could be used in today's modern society. It allows me to be creative but utilize design skills that are current and relevant.

  • What inspired you to be a graphic designer?
    Paula Scher

  • Favorite keyboard shortcut:
    Command Option Shift V (paste in place)

  • Worst VCD moment:
    Going to carefully xacto cut the last bit of trim off my project and having the ruler slip resulting in cutting the project in half and having to walk to Fedex and back the day the project was due. Always a fun time!

  • Best VCD moment:
    Opening my BFA letter. It made me feel capable and that my art background was a unique skill that was being recognized.

  • What inspires you the most?
    Creating design that can spark social change

  • Goals in 5 years:
    I'd love to have my own studio to be able to create/paint/illustrate for myself and others. I want to be able to travel at the drop of a hat and show my friends and family the world.

  • What job would you be terrible at?
    Accounting. I can't sit still for that long looking at numbers. Sorry mom!

  • What is your #1 pet peeve?
    When people take themselves too seriously

  • What song do you have completely memorized?
    thank u, next

  • What movie title best describes your life?
    La La Land

  • What is the luckiest thing that has ever happened to you?
    I found $20 three times in one week... it ended up being the same bill that I just kept misplacing.

  • What’s the best compliment you’ve ever received?
    "Your art is eye opening and has the potential to change something."
