My Dad once told me he knew I would grow up to do something creative when he realized I entertain myself for hours if set me down at a table with a box of crayons. At age four, when the average attention span is approximately 30 seconds. It’s been a slow artistic progression ever since.
My journey into design began when my Nana gave me a copy of Photoshop in middle school. I self-taught myself how to manipulate photo collages, and man did I think I was cool.
But my first real foray into graphic design was during my senior year of high school when one of my dear friends convinced me to join Yearbook staff. Since then, I've grown up on grid-based designs and beautiful spreads, but I've never lost sight of my photo-editing roots (although admittedly I'm much better now).
On a personal note, I’m a walking paradox: a hip-hop ballerina. A dramatic introvert. My family describes me as high-low maintenance. Do with that what you will. I tried really hard to write a bio about myself and found the whole process to be awkward and uncomfortable, so I’m going to give up on trying to pull it off and offer a more easy to digest list of ‘fun facts’ that you can peruse at your will, if you so choose (please feel free to scroll right on by them though).
Obligatory ‘Fun Facts’
Wouldn’t be caught dead wearing a shirt with buttons
When I find a song I like, I promptly listen to it on repeat for 48 hours
Always cold. Even in summer
Can literally dance for hours without stopping
Pickiest eater you will ever meet
Terrible at small talk and interacting with waitresses
Will word vomit all thrift details upon receiving a compliment on my outfit
Relentlessly optimistic & all-around enthusiast
