ILLUSTRATION | GRAPHIC RECORDING | ANIMATION | WORKSHOPS | CREATIVE CONSULTING
I am a graphic recorder, artist, illustrator, teacher, 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 taught on campus as a lecturer for several years after.
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.

While I am not accepting new projects and consultations for 2021, please reach out if you have an engagement you're interested in collaborating on in 2022.
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 a bit of info about your project and we can find a time to chat.
