I am a professional, creative, and detail orientated graphic designer. I started with a love and passion for fine arts. When I got to college that transformed itself into graphic design. I work well with clients and can work with you to reach an end product that you are happy with. I’m excited about graphic design and fine arts and love doing it, ready to work. 

I find inspiration in travel, meeting new people and experiencing different cultures. The outdoors also greatly influences my work and keep me changing and evolving.
