My goal is to design unique identities, intuitive experiences, and meaningful websites.

I’m currently a UX/UI Designer at Edenspiekermann, a digital agency in my hometown of Los Angeles. Although I’m primarily focused on design & branding, I’m always exploring other creative outlets including photography, music production, and writing.
