HELLO & WELCOME to my online portfolio!

When I was about four, my mother bought me a brand new present she thought I would love. To her surprise I ignored the toy, immediately tore up the box, and started to make a collage. When I finished I had made a sunset from the shredded remnants of the box, and the tissue paper with which it came. To this day we can’t remember what came with the box, and it doesn’t even matter. This connection really stuck with me for the rest of my life.
It is this passion that has guided me through life, pursuing first graphic design and now packaging design. I have always loved learning new ways to design, and have become well versed in many different Adobe Creative Cloud applications. This passion I feel towards design doesn’t end with craft: I am also and extremely active participant in graduate school - always helping my peers, organizing events, and mentoring students.
In my free time, I can be found in the park playing with strangers' puppies.
