I'm a strategic brand marketing and experience designer who specializes in immersive 3D design solutions. Designing with a strategic approach based on upfront research and business goals, from the conceptual phase of design thinking to finalizing experiential and merchandising solutions, I solve design problems by prioritizing the baseline of a clients need. Creating marketing & branding solutions, experiential spaces and fixtures/merchandising solutions that reflect and influence the user while elevating and enriching their entire brand experience. Highly motivated to create the most exciting and engaging experiences, I strive to go above and beyond expectations in all aspects of the design process. I'm always looking to learn and expand my skill-sets so I can continuously grow as a designer. I thrive on meeting new people, asking questions and experiencing new things. Please push me outside of my comfort zone!
