Hey there, fabulous folks! I’m not just your average creative—I’m a passionate explorer who seeks out those hidden gems off the beaten track.
There’s something truly magical about stepping into someone else’s shoes and immersing myself in their world. From colourful cultures to boundless creativity, I soak it all in and infuse it into my work. And trust me, when we connect, I’ve got a treasure trove of crazy travel stories to share.
I’ve been on quite the journey for the past year and a half, working at Simon Fraser University in different departments like the Beedie School of Business, Graduate Studies, and now, Undergraduate Records. While I’ve been thriving in this environment, my heart truly belongs to both communications and graphic design. So, I’m currently on the lookout for opportunities to dive headfirst into the Vancouver design scene.
This past year and a half has been a transformative period for me. Settling into Vancouver, (getting married 😲) updating my portfolio, and taking on exciting freelance projects have not only sharpened my skills but have also helped me discover my true self and where I want to take my career.
My insatiable curiosity for psychology and its intersection with design runs deep. I’m fascinated by how design choices can profoundly impact our decision-making processes, shape our social media habits, and even influence the broader cultural landscape. By understanding the psychology behind design, I strive to create compelling visuals that engage and guide the audience towards desired actions.
Moreover, design and communication go hand in hand. Effective communication is at the core of any successful brand or marketing strategy. By utilizing my expertise in both graphic design and marketing communication, I craft visually compelling and persuasive messages that effectively convey brand stories, capture attention, and inspire action.
Now, let’s get personal for a moment. Here are a few fun facts about me:
- I’m an unapologetic Fall Out Boy fan. Their music sets the rhythm for my days, and I’ll happily groove to their tunes until the end of time.
- When it comes to hotdogs, I always put tomato sauce under the cheese.
- My wanderlust has taken me to an impressive 22 countries and counting. The thrill of exploration fuels my spirit.
- Disney’s “Turning Red” has a special place in my heart, especially the song “Nobody Like U.” It’s a catchy earworm that I can’t get enough of!
- Baking is my happy place. I whip up mouthwatering choc chip cookies that will transport you to dessert heaven.
- I’m a language enthusiast and a musical explorer. Even if I don’t understand the lyrics, I appreciate music from diverse genres and cultures. Right now, I’m completely captivated by Stromae.
I’m an adventurous soul, a music aficionado, a cookie baking guru, and all round just want to have fun. Let’s team up and bring some genuine awesomeness to the world of design communications!
