Graphic Artist

Graffix was the in-house design studio for California State University Los Angeles. As graphic artist I conceptualized and designed collateral for publicity campaigns and other events for University-Student Union. Publicity campaigns included posters, banners, flyers, postcards, t-shirts, and other collateral.

Web Designer

As a freelancer for GoLive I was responsible for designing and building websites and website templates using Squarespace and Showit. The clientele we worked with were often solopreneurs, creatives, and small businesses. Using my background in web design, ux design, and branding I was able to serve as both a branding consultant and website designer to our clients. Notable clients include Girlboss, Create & Cultivate, Dallas Shaw, and Bianca Olthoff to name a few.

Creative Director

Little Trailer Studio was the name of my design studio while I was freelancing. During this time I created brand identities and websites for small businesses such as photographers, boutique shops, and online businesses to name a few. Working one-on-one with clients and creating brands from start to finish has given me that "birds' eye view" that is often needed of a creative director a well as an attention-to-detail that is needed of a graphic designer. I love the combination of concept and execution within my current design work and it is an area that I thrive in.
