05 A BIT ABOUT ME
Other than design, I like pineapple on pizza, rock climbing, obsessive organizing, and a series of grandma activities — Including, but not limited to: crochet, reading, puzzles, and thrifting might as well be my part time job. If you’re lucky enough to snag an interview with me, you should ask me how I knew I wanted to be a Graphic Designer!
