Woman behind the
eclectic resume

Graphic Designer

Nice to meet you! I am a graphic designer whose experience spans multiple areas of expertise: visual design, interactive design, UI/UX, web design and developing, illustration, and print production. The joy of design has been a part of me for as long as I can remember, and I feel so lucky to be within a field that allows me to express and strengthen my creativity regularly. My style has been shaped by my experiences, surroundings, and personality, and I love watching it shape as I do.

Experience

I graduated from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo in June 2016, with a B.S. in Graphic Communication. I've been traveling and working in mountain/beach towns last three years, and picking up contract work as I go. My resume spans anywhere from production artist to canyon guide, and I've been so incredibly grateful for the amazing work opportunities I've been given. If I have learned anything as a result of my eclectic resume, it's how to work in a team, communication is everything, and a happy/healthy worker is a great worker.

Leisure

This list is quite long and is largely related to where I'm living or the seasons at the time, but generally speaking, I'm drawn to the outdoors. While I love progressing in the things I already know, I equally enjoy the humility and excitement it takes to learn something new. Whether I consider myself to be a novice or expert, here is a short list of what makes me happy: snowboarding/splitboarding, surfing, scuba diving, illustrating, canyoning, caving, cooking, climbing, hiking, soccer, music festivals, camping, lake days, barbecuing, reading in a hammock.
