BFA Design, 2011

Current Position: Designer at Facebook

For the past three years, I’ve been designing projects that span multiple mediums and audiences. Sticking to my gut and pushing myself to take on new challenges has led me down a path of being a freelance designer, a designer and print lead for the 2012 Obama campaign, the lead UX / UI designer at a startup in Los Angeles, a designer for sustainability in Chicago, and most recently, a designer at Facebook.

During my time at the Art Academy, I was supported and motivated by the faculty and students to never stop designing, to find inspirations in my environments and to use design to solve problems. After transferring into the Art Academy from studying computer engineering and having little to no experience in the design field, the Art Academy provided me with a self-motivated environment to prepare me in my post college career.
