Hello and Welcome!

I am a recent graduate of the University of California Davis looking to put my artistic energy and analytical skills to work. My double major in Psychology and Art has endowed me with a unique combination of perspectives--an eye for aesthetics as well as excellent communication and teamwork skills.

I recently moved back  to my hometown of Redondo Beach, CA and am currently looking for a position where I can utilize my artistic energy.

I look forward to hearing from you!
