Design Portfolio


I am a recent graduate of the University of Pittsburgh, with a bachelor’s in media and professional communications, and have been working in the fashion and social media industry for the past four years. My experience ranges from social media management to video production to website coding. New to the NYC area, I am seeking a full-time role in digital marketing. I enjoy employing my creative skills to produce engaging content, particularly in the fashion industry. However, as my skills are transferrable, I am open to exploring opportunities in other industries. Thanks for reading; I can’t wait to connect!
