I am a graphic designer in the San Francisco Bay Area. I have been working as a designer since I graduated from UC Davis in 2007. My experience includes graphic design, production, idea & logo development, web design, branding, marketing and packaging.

I love design... because it's fun, creative, innovative, integrating, artistic, colorful, expressive, symmetrical while being asymmetrical and beautiful. I always push myself to turn good ideas into great results. I am a  believer in the power of design as I see it generate feelings and inspire actions.

Building relationships is a key element in developing powerful work. Getting to know people and being inspired by new ideas is one of the most important aspects of generating great design.

When I am not designing,  I am doing my thing as a hip-hop dancer. My passion, presence and hard work make me unique. I am also a music loving concert goer and aspiring world traveler. I spend my winters on a snowboard and my summers searching for sunshine and enjoying festival season in San Francisco, just a California girl, raised in LA, living in the Bay.

Thanks for stopping by.
