I’m a designer and illustrator currently living in Austin, Texas. I graduated in 2018 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Graphic Design from Indiana Wesleyan University. Since then I have worked in marketing, coffee, and the world of freelance design. My main goal is to connect graphic design and social consciousness in my creations, and create meaningful relationships.


Exploration In Curiosity

In an effort to gain new perspectives on design, I completed a list of open ended prompts, recorded my findings, and attempted to visualize my experiences through the creation of icons and a home movie.

As a side project during college, my professor pushed me to put myself in new situations and learn new things in order to gain new perspective and grow my design process. I was gifted a list of prompts such as watching a film from the Criterion Collection, researching a designer and exploring their personal style, and attending a gallery opening. In total, I crossed off 15 different items on the list, wrote about what I learned, and documented everything on “film.”

In addition, I designed a flat icon of my own face (which is still a fairly accurate depiction of me, give or take some hair) and customized it to represent each experience. What I ended up with was a super fun collection of memories and a prompt that pushed me creatively and socially.

You can watch my “film” here. I’m about to hit 3 subscribers on YouTube.
