Graphic Designer/Graphic Artist/Jill of all Trades!
My most recent position was a Marketing Graphic Designer role for the YMCA of Orange County combining my love for design with my desire of wanting to contribute positively to something based around community. Previously, I was an SMU (Special Mock Up) Designer for Rip Curl designing graphics for women’s t-shirts, hoodies, hats, and more. Before that, I worked with Walt Disney Imagineering as a Graphic Designer and Illustrator working on projects seen around Disneyland, California Adventure, and the Disney hotels in Anaheim. I also spent time as a Graphic Designer and Social Media Manager for a handful of restaurants in Carlsbad, designing for web, print, signage, menus, and everything in between. Check out the Design section of my website to see examples of my work.
While working as a design professional, I’ve also been pursuing my own small art business through my Etsy shop. With this passion project, I’ve further developed my Illustration and Design abilities, taught myself Social Media Marketing, gained a committed group of supporters, learned how to edit videos and make a profit through YouTube, practiced how to humanize customer service and content writing, experimented with Photography and Photo editing, and so much more. It has been one of the most fulfilling journeys I’ve had in life thus far. Check out my Etsy shop!
I’m brand new to Washington State as of December 2020 and loving every second of being here. It’s a dream come true living in the Pacific Northwest. Here’s a compilation video of weekend mini-road trips exploring King County.
But enough about the heavy stuff, in my free time I’m just a big ol’ dork. I love going thrifting, listening to film/tv/video game soundtracks, mini road trips, Nancy Drew PC games, watching TedxTalks, making YouTube videos, going for walks, watching behind-the-scenes footage of films, having deep conversations about aspirations, and learning new things. I really love to learn and grow as a designer and human. Quite recently I started teaching myself UX/UI design as well as a bit of motion graphics. Throughout the pandemic I taught myself how to sew and quilt, and built myself a profitable blog from the ground up as a home to share these passions of mine.
