My Life in GIFs

Wanna hang out some more? Here's my backstory.


Before becoming an Art Director, I worked as a media planner. I spent my days in strategy sessions and media flowcharts, but a deep-rooted passion for design inspired me to uninstall Excel and jump down the rabbit hole of Adobe.


The creative department looked like the place for me, so I pulled a LeBron and took my talents to South Beach to study Art Direction at Miami Ad School.


In two years, I worked on hundreds of briefs, interned at three agencies, lived in six cities, and created my portfolio — all while nerding out with the ad industry’s top creatives along the way.


Presentation development, graphic design, and video editing became second nature. Fluent in pop culture, I can easily rattle off ten reasons why Sophie Turner and I should be best friends, which took me to the West Coast for entertainment marketing.


Now, I’m a designer at Universal Pictures. I’ve had the pleasure of dreaming up creative for global partnership marketing, launching the studio’s first integrated campaign, designing bespoke pitches for executive leadership, and bringing Universal’s trade show activations to life around the world.


So, there you have it! Now let’s go make something awesome together.
