About Me

I am a graphic / web designer from the Boston area. I’m intrigued by innovative and experimental design concepts and enjoy unraveling these concepts to see what new and exciting things I can create. Architecture is my second love and acts as a heavy influence on my design thinking. I often use architectural methods in my design process and find it a helpful tool in creating unique and effective design. I recently completed my undergraduate degree at Drexel University and also was able to gain some incredible experience doing design work in Philadelphia and New York City.

Outside of design, I enjoy traveling and exploring new places with just my camera. Last summer I was lucky to be able to spend some time traveling through Europe on my own and photographing little towns and big cities along the way (check out my photography Instagram for some pictures!). I also have a love of Broadway shows, Curb Your Enthusiasm, and of course, dogs.
