After spending my childhood in Atlanta, and then my college life in Santa Barbara & Auckland, NZ, I have been shaped by a love for the outdoors, design, music, and film. All of that has been the backdrop on my journey of self-discovery, acceptance, and love. I know it sounds cheesy, but sometimes it's the truth.
Talking to me today, you may never know I spent the first 17 years of my life in the closet, hiding away from the very person I have become today. I wish I could have told my younger self that the person I feared would make me the happiest. The darkest corners of my mind, kept away and in recess for over a decade, have become the brightest parts of who I am today. With a strong love for graphic design, film, sex education, photography, environmental justice, and communication, my newfound confidence has allowed me to develop a passionate drive to explore how to combine the various elements of what I love. I envision a future in which I use my education, combined with my design skills, to relay information to those like me, who were terrified of the person they knew they truly were.
