I am currently an active senior at Kutztown University of Pennsylvania, and I will be graduating in May 2024 with a BFA in Communications Design.  My concentrations and passions is in Illustration and Package Design.
I have had two complete internships since 2022 that focused on Graphic Design.  My first one was as a Marketing Intern for CubeSmart Self Storage. My second internship was with Turkey Hill LLC in the summer of 2023. There I assisted with collateral designs, signage, and food photography.  I led numerous photoshoots for the Turkey Hill social medias and newsletters.  I had extensive experience with rebranding for their tourist attraction, The Turkey Hill Experience in Columbia, PA.  This allowed me to get hands on with packaging, legal copy, brand requirements, social media analytics and the process of a rebrand. I was then invited back as a Freelance Designer to assist with further design elements of The Turkey Hill Experience rebrand; where I edited signage, photo editing, designed infographics and updated old collaterals. In 2024 I completed my internship with ArtSkills in Bethlehem, PA. Here I am further learning package design, comping, video editing, setting up files, sign offs and PDQ’s etc. I experienced how a large craft company operates and communication between all departments, clients, and vendors.  Ever since I started at Kutztown University, I have always found great interest in illustration. I was highly inspired by my professor, the amazing John Steven Gurney, who taught many of my illustration classes and illustrated some of my favorite childhood books!  I love using story telling and illustration and applying it to my graphic design work, and I hope to further my career in storytelling and illustration.
