Experience


Compass




Designer, May 2018 to Present

After freelancing for Compass for a month, I joined the team full-time and officially became the first designer hired for the San Diego region. I have the pleasure of working on a nationwide team of talented designers, regularly designing custom logos, print collateral, editorial pieces, and identities for larger brand initiatives.


Saatchi & Saatchi

Freelance Designer, September 2017 to March 2018

I had an extended freelance contract with Saatchi & Saatchi, where I jumped right in and helped produce brand guidelines for the 2020 Toyota Olympic partnership. Shortly after that exciting project, I shifted gears and worked on a small, but robust, design team to help produce the Toyota Visual Identity System.


Everlane

Freelance Designer, January 2015 to April 2018

I was a regular freelancer for Everlane and had the pleasure of working closely with the creative team on bi-weekly product launches and event emails. I later took on collateral print work and experiential graphics for large pop-up events and campaigns such as Shoe Park, 100% Human, and their first set of brick-and-mortar stores in New York and San Francisco.


Feels Design Studio

Designer, 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.



Wanelo

Communication Designer, 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.


Twitter

Production Designer, 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.


Eventbrite

Intern to Visual Designer, May 2012 to September 2012 & 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.


Cesar Chavez Student Center

Graphic Designer, 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.
