I have always had a fascination with the convergence of art, design, music, technology, and life. I am currently a multidisciplinary creative specializing in direction, branding, print, and all things interactive. I love working with others to create compelling projects. I believe ideas can come from anywhere and it's exciting to bring them to life!
