about

LACMA
Montréal born, Virginia raised, Brooklyn livin’.

I completed my B.F.A. in Graphic Design & Art History from James Madison University in 2011 and worked as a print designer in the years following. White space, grid systems and beautiful typography will always have my heart. In 2015, I got the itch to step up my design skills and completed (as well as taught) General Assembly's Web Development Immersive, where I learned the fundamentals of programmatic thinking. Since then, I've combined the two worlds of design and dev by working as the Marketing Engineer at Conversocial.

If I'm not designing or brushing up on my coding capabilities, you can find me traveling, dreaming of restoring my tabletop letterpress, spending time with friends and family or squealing at the sight of a Dachshund.
