welcome.

my creative journey has taken a wide variety of turns which have blessed me with experiences in video editing, branding, digital media design, advertising, photography, copywriting, and barista-ing. through my creative ventures, i have found a passion for influencing the growth of meaningful brands through story-telling, strategic planning and creative direction.

video reel

i was introduced to photoshop in the 9th grade (for me thats 2009). ever since, i have been involved with graphics, print/digital flyers, web, packaging, and a handful of other design projects. i have worked both on the agency and brand side which eludes to a great understanding of the customer journey from artwork to action.

analog

i started my journey with a digital camera, and i learned photoshop before i knew anything about lighting. originally i took photos with the intent to edit them later; i still do that when the time is right. although, analog photography has allowed me the space to act intentionally and sporadically. anyone who has ever gotten film developed knows the feeling when a roll comes back with gems. these are the gems i’ve found over the years.

video reel

in this section, you will find a variety of select videos i have cut. these videos vary from short form narratives to quick, eye catching ads for digital advertisements. my thought process is fluid and changes to match the goals for each project. my brain acts analytically to build a well thought out strategy before shifting to the creative process. i am extremely grateful for the wonderful teams i have collaborated with.

moments

there are times were memories need to be captured. i am available for hire for various types of events including graduation photos, family photos, engagements, and more. please contact me for more information.
