Raised in Richmond, Virginia I have always been surrounded by art, music and endless creativity. My love for art and design blossomed into what it is today thanks to the amazing individuals and cultures that envelop the city. This city and my passion for art has led me to pursue and study a multitude of creative forms.
I now have a background in graphic design, illustration, and studio art. Currently I am pursuing a Master's Degree at the VCU Brandcenter for Experience Design.

Feeling the sun on my skin

I am the second oldest in a family with five kids. From a young age our parents instilled in us the importance of a good work ethic, but we definitely know how to have some fun time too.
I love to travel. It allows me to see new landscapes, meet new people, and experience new cultures. The photo above is in Ireland but I've spent some time in China, Wales, Germany, and more.
I am a huge animal person. I love all of them, every kind. I try to volunteer as a foster whenever I am able. Click here to check out some of my previous foster babies. There is nothing better then seeing them find loving homes.
Being outdoors is everything to me. Whether I'm camping, hiking or just having a long, lazy day at the river. It is always a fun time when you're with good people and have a gorgeous view.
