“Are you going to be a writer?”
“Maybe... Maybe I’ll be a lot of things.”
I graduated with full honors from DePaul University in Chicago with a major in Art History and a double minor in Painting and Spanish Language. While in school, I also studied Creative Writing, Graphic Design, Digital Photography, English Literature, and Urban Planning, among other things. Needless to say, my interests are wide in range.
I’ve always been interested in the “Venn diagrams” of life and finding how seemingly-unalike things can have more in common than initially expected. This interest has proven itself useful in the work I have done since my graduation, from managing the social media presence of a small art gallery, to writing bilingual artwork labels for a local cultural center, to designing and creating bespoke wedding invitations for one of the most well-respected studios in Chicago. Despite the differences in these environments, I’ve found that a knack for creative writing, design, and illustration; commitment; and a passion for building relationships and working closely with others has brought me success in the various endeavors I’ve undertaken. Above all, I am a passionate and dedicated person and am eager to learn and to grow. I love meeting new people and trying new things, and I find tremendous satisfaction in working as a member of a team.
In terms of my creative work, my background is in weddings, where I have five years of experience in designing and writing copy for print-ready pieces for events big and small, formal and informal. I love painting and photographing elements of the natural world, and I adore working on detailed architectural drawings.
Interested in having a detailed drawing done of your first home? A piece of fun, digital artwork starring your favorite quote? An illustration to go with a blog post you’re working on? A cool header for your website? I’d love to hear all about it!
