In the Summer of 2022, I joined Misfits Productions. We participate in seasonal events like Mardi Gras, the Fourth of July, and Dickens on the Strand with elaborate costumed floats and are now producing the Misfits Ball (formerly the Witch's Ball). We also support the Galveston Theatre & Arts Partnership, hosting screenings of classic films in the historic Scottish Rite Cathedral Theater.
I studied printmaking in college and learned about Solarplate, a process that is less toxic than traditional printmaking methods and lends itself well to photography. View my Solarplate printmaking series from 2009. I also enjoy relief printmaking, and since 2020 I have participated in several fundraising initiatives, raising over $1,000 through sales of my linocut prints benefiting local and national organizations.

Currently, I'm delving into UX/UI design and learning more about accessibility, while continuing to do freelance photography and always seeking new creative collaborations.
I'm a Visual Designer with a graduate degree and professional experience in administration, web design, graphic art, photography, and social media management.
