With a Bachelor of Arts in public relations and marketing, I exercised skillfulness in creating rapport between companies and their public, assisted in maintaining a favorable corporate image, sales operations, and crisis management. Now a recent graduate with my Masters of Fine Arts in graphic design, I have gained proficiency in graphic design, research development, design strategy, print production, fabrication, placemaking, branding, typography, speculative design, and curatorial education.

In the duration of my M.F.A. candidacy, I proposed design solutions for issues of displacement, marginalization, environmental and cultural preservation. Working with these topics I uncovered a passion for placemaking and creating interactive user experiences that bring stories to life through play and education. My plans for the future are to design environments to be more inclusive and enjoyable. Through my work, I hope to uplift, inspire, and encourage learning through play.

I would like to pursue a career in Houston or New York City, but open to a nomadic lifestyle. My favorite designers are Paul Rand and Roberto Burle Marx.  I would have like to have asked them what their most challenging body of work was and what did they wished to have made next?
