Presently, I work in my home studio Pink Skirt Productions. There are many hats I put on to produce projects that represent myself as a creative director, designer, illustrator, production artist, stylist & manager. Honestly, whoever it takes to get the job done.
One of my most favorite things about design is working with people. Some amazing work can come when together we think, explore, trust, & convey messages—to reach out, educate, inspire, and most important, make a difference.
