personality portrait

I am currently a fourth year student pursuing a B.S. in Graphic Design Communication at Jefferson (Philadelphia University + Thomas Jefferson University), with a minor in Business.

Right now, I have the most experience in branding & planning for fundraising events. However, I would love to try my hand at invitation design, brand identity or cover art for music & movies.

My dream job is anything that would allow me to travel. I'd love a job that asks me travel for work assignments, or one that gives me enough money & time off so I can go on my own. It doesn't matter…I just want to see the world.

Aside from globetrotting, some of my other favorite things include Papermate Flair pens, dogs & showtunes. I'm also a sucker for bad puns & dad jokes.
