graphic designer. taco connoisseur. avid adventurer.

Born and raised in southern Louisiana, I was taught that nothing is unattainable with hard work. At an early age, I had already unlocked the wisdom that your career should be in something you love doing. It was also a time when I thought I wanted to be a zoo keeper (until someone told me that I would have to pick up poop). 

Later on I discovered art, and later chose to focus on design since wining prospective patrons didn’t seem to be my thing. Also, I get a rush from solving problems.

In 2011, I graduated from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette and completed the BFA program in Graphic Design. After working for about two years, I decided it was time to grow my skills and moved to New York City. I have since been working in the industry and continue to learn new techniques. 

Outside of work, I draw for my sketch blog and develop work on short comics. Two of them have appeared in Dirty Diamonds: An All-Girl Comics Anthology. Outside of art my hobbies include training for half marathons, reading seafaring folklore, and traveling extensively both in the United States and abroad.
