Designer. Photographer. Athlete.

I am inspired by the power of people connecting and use it in every thing I do. Design is just planned communication. The more effective the communication, the stronger the design.

Born and raised in northern New Jersey, I grew up only miles from the greatest city on Earth, New York City. I moved south to North Carolina during the summer of 2011 to pursue my dream of playing NCAA Division 1 soccer. I quickly fell in love with everything about Charlotte; my new school, my new soccer family, and my studies to become a graphic designer. After balancing school with soccer for 4 years, my athletic career came to an end in 2014. Since then I have been able to focus solely on enhancing my skills as a graphic designer and I have gained an immense amount of experience through different internships, freelance work and my professional career. Every day I am extremely thankful for my athletic career and not only the amazing opportunities it brought me, but also the life lessons I learned along the way.

I graduated from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte in May 2016, earning my Bachelor of Fine Arts in Art with a concentration in Graphic Design. I currently hold the position as Digital Media Designer at KaVo Kerr in Charlotte, NC. I enjoy working in a fast-paced environment and pride myself on getting my work done as quickly as possible both efficiently and effectively.
