UNIVERSITY OF CENTRAL OKLAHOMA (UCO)
I currently live in Oklahoma City and attend the University of Central Oklahoma’s School of Design in Edmond OK. UCO Design is where I discovered my passion for design and realized my future in the creative industry. Creativity has always been central to my life. As a child, I was drawn to creative outlets like woodworking, painting, sculpting, art, videography, photography, creative writing, and more. My mom always encouraged me and little did she know how it would influence my future. Music has also been a central part of my life. I took piano lessons for seven years and still enjoy playing and making my own music. This was a significant outlet because it allowed me to explore emotion and creativity through sound. My passion for music, art, and design has pushed me to dream of working professionally in these industries and eventually becoming a creative director or establishing my own business.
IF THERE WERE NO BARRIERS AND CONSTRAINTS, WHAT PROJECT WOULD YOU WANT TO WORK ON?
I would like to work with a mainstream artist or musician to create album artwork, music videos, campaign collateral, social media presence, and motion graphics for live performances.
WHAT ARE YOU READING/LISTENING TO/WATCHING?
I’m currently reading a sci-fi series called The Chaos Chronicles by Jeffery Carver and I enjoy listening to a wide range of music genres, like electronic, alternative, and even film scores. Some of my favorites include Rüfüs Du Sol, Marsh, Neil Frances, Hans Zimmer, and Jon Hopkins.
WHO IS SOMEONE YOU LOOK UP TO IN YOUR FIELD?
I am a big fan of the graphic designer Armin Hofmann and the photo – montage artist Jerry Uelsmann, as well as current artists in the digital art community including: @dorianlegret @aeforia @geoglyser @oggarts @jrdsctt
