In May 2015, I received my B.A. in Visual Communication from Loyola University Chicago, and am currently working in Chicago as a visual strategist for a Marketing company. My hometown is Manhattan Beach, California where I grew up surfing and playing volleyball. Volleyball has played a significant role in my life. I played on two state championship teams during high school and played in the finals four different times at a national level. I was recruited by Loyola University Chicago to play Division 1 volleyball. Qualities that have contributed to my success as an athlete include being a hard worker, good under pressure, coachable, and a team player. These traits have provided me a solid foundation for my professional aspirations. I currently live in Chicago and, in my spare time, enjoy photography and screen-printing my own apparel.
