What inspires you?
My family and friends inspire me every day. They have taught me so much, and their inspiration is what drives me to create and inspire others. I’m also inspired by interactions with people in general and understanding how they process everyday things.

What are your favorite hobbies?
I enjoy traveling, painting and spending time with my family and friends. You can also find me at either a new brunch place or a small coffee shop on the weekends

What can’t you do without?
I can’t do without coffee.

Why do you enjoy design?
I enjoy design because it is a way I can express myself artistically every day. I can’t remember a day that I haven’t learned something new in design, whether listening to a new design podcast or discovering a new tool on Illustrator.
