About Me

As a multidisciplinary designer specializing in web design and development, UI design, and brand development, I excel in making design accessible and less intimidating to those who might find it challenging. Currently leading the new brand overhaul at Whitman-Walker, I employ my passion for art and creativity along with advanced AI resources to enhance efficiency and productivity. My experience at Dreamscape Marketing as a Senior Designer was instrumental in developing innovative digital marketing solutions and in guiding junior designers. I hold a Graphic Design degree from Parsons School of Design (2018) and a Business Administration degree from the University of Maryland (2015).

Beyond my professional pursuits, art and creativity deeply influence my life. I engage in hobbies such as illustration, painting, and crafting, which not only fuel my creativity but also inspire my work. Recognized with awards like the 2020 Gold Winner at the Muse Awards and the AVA Digital Awards, my career reflects a commitment to making impactful and innovative design understandable and approachable in the digital world.
