Hi there!

I'm a third year studying Design and Computer Science at UC Davis. My career goals center around bringing together design, technology, and business to make a positive social impact in the world. I get excited about digital product design, and I love working with people.

Work Experience

ASUCD Creative Media
Project Manager
December 2016 - Present

Creative Media is an almost entirely student-led full-service digital creative agency that operates under the Associated Students of the Universtity of California, Davis (ASUCD). I coordinate integrated marketing campaigns and web/mobile projects from start to finish by conducting client briefs, creating project timelines, and delegating responsibilities.

ASUCD Creative Media
Marketing Director
August 2015 - December 2016

Working closely with a Co-Director for several months, I managed the Marketing Department, a team of 3 - 4 students. One of our biggest accomplishments was a marketing campaign that doubled voter turnout in the ASUCD elections. As the main client contact, I was recently awarded the Mark & Linda Champagne Award for Exemplary Customer Service. My role also encompassed project management of Marketing related projects. I worked in a team to implement structural changes and document an interdepartmental workflow to improve interdepartmental communication and better serve clients.

PIXEL: Graphic Design Club
June 2016 - Present

PIXEL is the AIGA student group at UC Davis. As a team of six board members, we plan and host presentations, workshops, and studio tours related to skills and careers in graphic design. I structured and facilitated Manator Manatee, our peer mentorship program.

Economics & Business Student Association
Design Chair
April 2015 - Present

Over the past two years, I have designed numerous print and digital marketing materials and internal documents for EBSA, a selective undergraduate business organization. I recently directed rebranding efforts to establish a consistent brand identity by developing branding guidelines and accompanying materials.
