Consistently merging the worlds of traditional art and modern design, I am a proud honors graduate of the Design & Visual Communication program at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. From a young age, drawing and painting have been my artistic anchors, shaping my creative journey. But it does not stop there…

These traditional art forms are the cornerstone of my design approach, infusing my work with a unique blend of handcrafted authenticity and contemporary aesthetics. Whether it's the fluid brushstrokes, intricate line work, or thoughtful composition, my designs capture the essence of visual storytelling with a personal signature.

My visions are never too far away; I thrive on living a life full of creative challenges. While continuously keeping my head in the clouds, I am always expanding my knowledge and keeping an open mind to learn. This passion drives me to continuously evolve as a designer, and that is what I will keep striving for as long as I am alive.

Experience

Graphic Design Intern

June 2024 - Present

I will be assisting with campaign development and collaborate with the creative team. I will also shadow senior colleagues, adapt work based on client feedback, and ensure timely, high-standard project delivery. This role will continue to develop my conceptual thinking, problem-solving skills, and proficiency in Adobe Creative Suite within a team-based, deadline-driven environment.

Graphic Design Intern

November 2023 - May 2024

My work involved a dynamic array of projects, both client-facing and internal. I've had the opportunity to collaborate with the Executive Creative Director, contributing to the development of illustration and typography lockups for an Augmented Reality project.

Designer + Illustrator

September 2023 - December 2023

In the UW-Milwaukee Art 329 Package Design course, I participated and rose to the challenge, of creating a design that not only encapsulated the spirit of the city but also distinguished itself amidst a bustling beer retail scene. My design was selected for a high-profile collaboration and has the distinction of being the first student-created design to be licensed and distributed citywide for UW-Milwaukee's Panther Pale Ale.

Creative Design Intern

June 2023 - August 2023

I gained invaluable insights into the workings of a full-service advertising agency, particularly the structure of an extensive Creative Function. Through shadowing Designers and assisting with projects aligned with my skill set, I understood the intricacies of various roles and their contributions to the final product. Additionally, I had the unique opportunity to collaborate on special initiatives, including an archival project arranged by the chairman of the agency Greg Nickerson.

Marketing + Advertising Intern

June 2023 - August 2023

My journey with The BrandLab, through their mission of empowering BIPOC students, provided me with a unique opportunity to intern at Bader Rutter, where I engaged with the inner workings of a full-service ad agency. Empowered by The BrandLab's commitment to diversity and inclusivity, I had the privilege to contribute my skills and enthusiasm to the Creative Function at Bader Rutter.
