I am currently a student at American University in DC majoring in Graphic Design (with a specialization in print media) and Studio Art, graduating spring of 2019.  I'm especially interested in concept development, image making/illustration, and the intersection of art and design. In my work, I often look for ways to combine modern technology with handmade techniques. I have a passion for learning and love discovering new information about the content I design for.

Most recently, I was the Visual Identity Intern at National Geographic Kids, designing for the magazine and books. I’ve also done graphic design work at Current and The American University Museum at the Katzen Arts Center. You can view my resume here.
