Favorite Skills

Graphic Design

(is my passion)

My favorite tools are Procreate, Illustrator, Photoshop, and InDesign– in that order.  I am comfortable working with all kinds of printers and vendors, from conception to proof to print. The majority of my work is just for digital use though so I tend to veer in that direction.

Video & Animation

Animated typography, vector illustrations, GIFs

I have experience creating frame-by-frame animations in Procreate, as documented on my instagram profile. Additionally, I can use After Effects to animate pretty much any Illustrator or Photoshop file. I have also created title sequences for YouTube channels and local musicians. 

Website Design

Wix, Wordpress, Squarespace, Showit, Shopify...

I have worked with a lot of different designer-friendly website builders depending on what my client needed or already had set up in place. 

Apple Shortcuts

random lol.

I use the shortcuts app to run and create shortcuts for a variety of repetitive tasks that graphic designers are expected to do. The best part is I am able to share these shortcuts with my team and we are all happier. 

Background.

2021-Present

I am currently employed as a graphic designer at PracticeGenius, a software company dedicated to helping small businesses increase customer engagement and satisfaction.

2020-2021

After graduation, I worked under the talented designers at Ames Bros. Learning from these artists was a crucial stepping stone in my career and I am very grateful for the opportunity. 

2016-2020

Washington State University

   Bachelor of Arts and Science

   Digital Technology & Culture, Fine Arts

During my four years at WSU, I gained valuable design experience through my coursework, design internships, and on-campus design jobs. I was employed as a graphic designer for the following organizations: College Hill Custom Threads, the Coug, WSU Student Entertainment Board, and the WSU Student Affairs office. 
My diverse background has allowed me to hone my creative skills while also gaining valuable communication and project management experience.

I consider myself to be a multifaceted artist, and my primary medium is graphic design. More than a hobby, I have been pursuing this career since the first time I understood what it meant. Lately, that has meant using digital art to solve practical problems. So, whether you're a small local business looking to establish your brand identity, or a musician looking for visually compelling marketing collateral, I have skills and experience to help bring your vision to life. And if you are neither of those but just want to commission art don't worry I wanna work with you too.

Growing up, I witnessed my mother's entrepreneurial success and gained invaluable experience and appreciation for the unique challenges and opportunities that come with running a local business. Combined with my bachelor's degree from Washington State University and over 5 years of professional experience working with small to mid-sized companies, I've developed an eye for creating designs that are both beautiful and functional.
