Most recently, I was working with Real Chemistry, an innovative healthcare agency. I created animated social content for clients in women's health, biotechnology, cancer research, skincare, mental health support for new and expectant mothers, and more. My work with on Phexxi's integrated "House Rules" campaign with Annie Murphy landed me a One Show Gold Pencil Award, among others listed below. I also supported our entertainment and marketing agency, Starpower on collaborations with brands involving experiential thinking, branding, presentation design, high level mockups, influencer gifting ideas and custom merch creation. Check out my Case Studies for a preview of this work and please reach out for the password to see more. I also had the privilege of supervising junior designers which I really enjoy. I was actively engaged in many of the company's DE&I resource groups and supported with designs and presentations. 
Additional career highlights include illustrating and animating at Big Spaceship, designing for live music with Blackbird Presents; creating with MFG in Los Angeles, social animations for various Netflix series; creating animations for Austin City Limits Festival, Art Direction for Wanderlust, crafting cover artwork for music releases and podcasts, creating thoughtful brand identities and tons of concert posters!
