About me

Hey! I'm a Graphic Designer and Illustrator with a masters in Marketing and several courses on Design Thinking. Having an artistic education and a business focused degree helps me understand a project fully, so I'm able to create strategic and creative approaches with my work. Plus, I just love creating, and if I have to learn something new to make some crazy idea of mine true, I'll learn it.
