I grew up in the San Fernando Valley and got my BA in Design | Media Arts at UCLA. I was at first inspired to pursue design by the popularity of Shepard Fairey’s portrait of President Obama – it showed me that commercial art can be a tool for profound social change. I’ve also always been fascinated by the psychology of design: how can it be used as a tool to make people want to be a part of something?
I also have extensive marketing experience and know my way around Hubspot and Zoho. During my time as Print Marketing Director of UCLA Campus Events, I gained a ton of insight into event planning and event marketing.
I’ve always sort of been a jack of all trades, and my other interests include museums, thrift stores & antiques, literature, and digital currencies & the deep web.
I’m a serial side-hustler. Here’s what I’m working on when I’m not designing.
