RESUME

 

 
 

DENVER

LOS ANGELES

SEATTLE

 

I began my artistic career with drawing in elementary school, which eventually put me on a path to studying the design fundamentals at the University of Northern Colorado for two years. Seeking the streamlined creative hubs in the West coast, I began studying graphic design and advertising in Los Angeles at OTIS College of Art and Design, where I discovered the joys of print and poster design, the art of good presentation, and studied in-depth the “ideal” relationship between a creative and client. Before graduating with a BA, I worked as a creative for Seed Agency, a marketing studio in El Segundo California. I joined the Catalysis team shortly after moving to Seattle in the summer of 2017, and have steadily been gathering more responsibilities within the creative team. When I'm not fiddling with Photoshop and Illustrator, I practice archery, take naps, play Pokemon, eat pasta, and draw small photo-realistic portraits in graphite to post later on my Instagram.
