WOODBURY UNIVERSITY SCHOOL OF MEDIA, CULTURE & DESIGN

I am a senior graphic design major at Woodbury University. I was drawn to graphic design when I was 16. I’m always inspired by nature, art, and from everything around me. I think in the power of design to express ideas and create experiences that words alone cannot. I consider that a design that is clear, conscious, individual and tells an exciting story. I found that many of the things that I was interested in were elements and styles of design that I had not fully come to realize until the beginning of my studies at Woodbury University. I have a passion for both fine arts along with design, and I hope to continue my practice in both throughout my life and my career.
