My design background and style is a reflection of the community and area that I grew up in and love. Much of my influence for art and design comes from the diverse and unique cultures, people, and environment of Southern California. There is so much to draw from and be influenced by on a daily basis. My expertise focuses on, but is definitely not limited to, packaging, branding, marketing and advertising, social media, illustration, and product development and design. I am always looking to learn more and further my design career artistically in any way I can.
Since graduating, I have been able to work and design for companies such as The Surfrider Foundation, Neff Headwear, and Ventura Harley-Davidson. I have also had an opportunity to pursue some freelance work and have worked with non-profit organizations as well. Currently, I am working professionally as a graphic designer for an electronics company based in Santa Monica, CA. Many of the products I have designed and designed for have been seen and sold in stores nationwide including Amazon, Wal-Mart, Home Depot, and Target, to name a few. I have also been lucky enough to design for all age groups. I look forward to a continuing career in graphic design and am always looking for an opportunity for a new and exciting project.
