My career in communications began over six years ago in Austin, Texas. Writing research papers by day and designing by night, I graduated from The University of Texas with a Biology degree and somehow also a portfolio of posters, flyers, and album artwork. I combined all of my interests through social marketing, using design for social and behavioral change.

My client list currently ranges from non-profit organizations to vulgar rap artist. The work is an odd mixture of good and grime–I like to call it life.

I currently live in Baltimore where I’m enrolled in the graphic design MFA program at MICA. I’m also currently not getting enough sleep.
