A graphic designer from Portland with a flair for merging creativity with practicality. My decade-plus journey across tech, retail, and freelance design has been driven by a commitment to diversity, inclusivity, and accessibility in every project. I thrive on making complex concepts accessible and engaging, sprinkling a bit of fun into the mix.


Outside of design, I'm exploring the Pacific Northwest, singing, or diving into the latest video game. I believe in crafting visuals that resonate, connect, and celebrate the rich tapestry of human experience.


Let's create something meaningful and vibrant together!
