About

I'm a product designer and a digital storyteller that connects everyday people with brands. 

I've always had this curiosity for stories. The ones that opened the door for me to explore and discover new adventures.

As a kid, I would try to imagine different stories in my head. I would try to create images with pencils and paper from the movies and shows I watched to my day-to-day interactions on the streets.  

Over the years, my curiosity and desire to create stories have expanded into the digital world. I create human-centered experiences for everyday people with brands. Pulling from my experience, as an art director, UX/IA/UI designer, and strategist.

Some things about me that you wouldn't know, but now you do is that my childhood consisted of A LOT of Power Rangers. I'm a motion enthusiast that grew up with four sisters #thestruggle. My Hogwarts House is Ravenclaw and Tupac and I have the same B-Day (6/16) #geminilluminati. The symbol West African symbol above means adaptability, which is something I strive to be on every adventure.
