About The Designer

I have gained a wealth of knowledge and experience from my freelance work as well as during my time at an advertising agency and interior design and wallpaper company. I have experience with print design, web design, as well as product design. My Illustration abilities set me apart from other graphic designers. Through my time at York Wallcoverings, not only have I utilized all of my design skills, but I have acquired a knowledge of Interior Design.

I am exuberant and enthusiastic and have a great sense of humor and outlook on life. I put my all into my work and am extremely focused on the little details. My shining personality will bring high energy to any collaborative work environment. After all, I was the Sun for Halloween.

SEE THE FUTURE

In the future, I hope to own my own tiny home and live in a “tiny house community” with my family on a large plot of land

 
 

A few of my favorite things are concerts, crisp fall air, plants, cats, distant train horns, moonstone & the smell of sandalwood
