I am a graphic designer with four years of experience. I have worked in different industries as a designer, ie: internet radio, ad agencies, e-commerce, non-profits, and as a freelancer. My love of travel and personal history of moving around a great deal has helped me easily adapt to any situation and be prepared for any outcome. I enjoy getting out of my comfort zone, am driven to learn, consider myself resourceful, and not afraid to take risks. Setting goals for myself is a daily habit and I am always looking to expand my skill set. Currently I am diving into front-end developing and UX. My concerns are education, the environment, community,social impact, music, and new technology.

"A tapestry is the metaphor often invoked to describe diversity, a richly textured web of individual species woven together with interlocking tasks. In such a setting, diversity means strength, and monoculture means weakness. Remove the threads, one by one, and an ecosystem becomes less stable, less able to withstand natural catastrophe and disease, less able to stay healthy and to evolve over time. The more diversity there is, the more productive functions- for the ecosystem, for the planet- are performed. " -Cradle to Cradle: Remaking the Way We Make Things

"To eliminate the concept of waste means to design things- products, packaging, and systems- from the very beginning on the understanding that waste does not exist. It means that the valuable nutrients contained in the materials shape and determine the design: form follows evolution, not just function." - Cradle to Cradle: Rethinking the way we make things

"Our system of law doesn't acknowledge the derivative nature of creativity. Instead, ideas are regarded as property, as unique and original lots with distinct boundaries. But ideas aren't so tidy. They're layered, they’re interwoven, they're tangled. And when the system conflicts with the reality... the system starts to fail."
