Experience

Designer
Compass, June 2018 to Present
After freelancing for Compass for a month, I was given the opportunity to join the team full-time, officially becoming the first design hire in San Diego, where I plan to continue to grow.

Freelance Designer
Compass, May 2018 to June 2018
Most recently, I’ve been working with the Compass team and am one of two designers working from their newly launched San Diego branch. I work closely with the marketing team to help the national brand introduce itself to the city and the agents within it.

Freelance Designer
Saatchi & Saatchi, September 2017 to March 2018
I had the opportunity to work onsite with the design team at Saatchi & Saatchi LA to jump in and help on a major brand project that spread across both print and web based material, and included translating designs from desktop to tablet and mobile devices.

Freelance Graphic Designer
Everlane, January 2015 to April 2018
I’ve had an ongoing freelance relationship with Everlane, which gave me the opportunity to work on bi-weekly product launches and event emails with the team, as well as collateral print pieces within the provided art direction for larger pop-ups and campaigns like Shoe Park, 100% Human, and their first retail stores in New York and San Francisco. 

Graphic Designer
Feels Design Studio, September 2014 to Present
I manage multiple clients, helping them grow their brand, often times from the ground up. Projects include logo design, brand identity and web design; leveraging everything from typography, print ephemera, Shopify, terminal and Git for their ecommerce needs.

Communication Designer
Wanelo, January 2014 to September 2014
Wanelo is a company that makes shopping social, in a format similar to Pinterest. I worked with the design, engineering, and editorial team on a variety of projects — from designing and promoting new features on desktop, to leading the design direction for featured users to improve SEO.

Production Designer
Twitter, September 2012 to March 2013
While at Twitter, I fine tuned my production skills and deepened my attention to detail by learning from and working within a large design team, creating marketing materials and designing emails alongside the growth team to help increase user retention.

Design Intern, Visual Designer
Eventbrite, May 2012 to September 2012 and March 2013 to January 2014
At Eventbrite, I worked alongside different teams, from sales to engineering. My main role was to build custom event pages for larger clients using the Eventbrite ticketing platform and custom code, while also designing printed materials for events put together by the marketing team.

Graphic Designer
Cesar Chavez Student Center, April 2011 to July 2012
While attending SFSU, I worked as a graphic designer on campus where I designed both print and web based material for various departments and organizations within the student center—including newsletters, site updates, show calendars, new campus vendors, and events.
