ILLUSTRATION | GRAPHIC RECORDING | ANIMATION | WORKSHOPS | CREATIVE CONSULTING
I am a graphic recorder, artist, animator, illustrator, teacher, and creative consultant currently practicing on Ohlone Land // Berkeley, CA. I grew up in the Bay Area, went to UC Berkeley to study City & Regional Planning/Urban Design and have been helping folks translate their ideas and dreams into compelling visuals and visual language ever since.
I strive to make work that is hand-made, rooted in deep study and in service of social justice movements. I am always in the practice of improving my ability to synthesize, visualize and articulate complex content through compelling visuals and visual narratives. I am a creative and a student at heart, and bring curiosity, silliness, creativity and a dedication to an anti-oppressive practice to all of my work.

My 2022 calendar is currently full, but please reach out if you have an engagement you'd like to work on together in 2023.
Each project is unique and often the best way for us to determine how we might work together is with a quick introductory phone call.
Send me an email with as much info as you have about your project (timeline, budget, other logistics) and we can find a time to chat.
