I have recently completed my Graphic & Interactive Design BFA at Tyler School of Art. I can still taste the crepes from the Temple Crepe truck, it is so recent. However, despite my newness to the working world of design, I am eager to jump into the metaphoric graphic design saddle.
While I may not have a lot of professional design work on my resume, I has been designing for years, just in a different medium. I have a broad background in the performing arts and was a dance instructor for 6 years and a choreographer/creative team member at a regional theater for 3 years (what paid my bills in college). The skills I have gained from my years of working in the performing arts are directly transferrable to design. I have worked on a creative team, learning to communicate effectively to create a unified show. I have spent long days and longer nights finessing a dance piece, ensuring that it tells the exact story that it needed to tell. I have managed casts of 80 actors and have learned how to communicate ideas so that every one of them understood what needed to be done. I have guided staging concepts starting as rough ideas on paper to full spectacles on opening night, while keeping the original soul of the idea intact.
I am a lady who works hard and plays hard. I love good food, great movies, and better friends. Whether it be a theater or my own living room, I frequently find myself on some sort of a stage, entertaining those around me with charisma and wit. Again, while I may be young and wide-eyed, I am ready to take on any challenge and prepared to work hard to make your design project beautiful and meaningful.
Let’s create together,
