I have always loved color and design. As a child,I would scream whenever I was put in anything red or polka-dotted. At 3 years old, I demanded that everything in my life was periwinkle (not just purple, but specifically periwinkle). At 6, I discovered my love for leopard print. And at 10, my love for stripes. It is safe to say, I have always had strong opinions on the design of things around me. 

My love for design exploded when I saw my first Wes Anderson movie, Moonrise Kingdom. When I watched that movie it all clicked for me. I fell into a world of symmetrical scenes and beautiful colors that scratched an itch in my mind that I didn’t even realize was there. I knew I wanted to create things that had a similar effect on people. I started making (horrible, but still pretty) films in high school. At first, I thought I wanted to go into film-making, but when I thought about it, I realized that what I really liked about filmmaking was being able to control and design the scenes. That brought me to graphic design.

I love creating beautiful and colorful things that connect me to my younger self; the girl who knew exactly how she wanted her world to look and wasn’t afraid of mixing bold colors and funky patterns.
