I transitioned to design recently and volunteer my skills in UX design and graphic design to support women of color who own small businesses.
In my free time, I do photography, both digital and film, and focus primarily on weddings and editorial photoshoots. Overall I enjoy making art using various mediums and I am always eager to try new ones. I practice yoga daily and enjoy playing tennis as well as going on hikes.
