Graphic Design


I originally studied communication at St. Francis College, and ran on the track team. Running has been a big part of my life and has taught me a sense of independence since it’s not a sport where you can rely on others, but your own abilities. One of my proudest moments was running the Brooklyn Half Marathon at 17 years old and showing that I was able to hold my own against other runners that were much older than me. I struggled with a lot of injuries near the end of high school and even through out my time at St Francis. Even though I no longer run competitively, I love the sport of running greatly.

I have taken a few years off from school in an attempt to find myself. I work at J Crew as a stylist. I chose to major in communication design at City Tech with the intent of going into advertising. I hope to improve myself both creatively and intellectually through my experiences and interactions with my professors and peers.
