I am a designer by trade, and an ardent generalist by nature. I take a systems-oriented approach to everything I do, which allows me to value and champion multiple perspectives, narratives, and needs within any interaction I engage with. I currently work as an Associate Creative Director with Google Developers, and a Visiting Professor with Pratt Institute, where I earned my MFA in Communications Design.
Currently working as:
- an art director, designer, and strategist with Google Developers in NYC, focusing specifically on design for social media, and how to responsibly research and practice design through a studied DEI lens within a corporate environment.
- a visiting professor within the Graduate Communications Design program at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn.
- a designer for Belladonna* Collaborative, where I create books, chaplets, and reading series promotional content.
Reside in: Brooklyn, NY

Excited about: working with the Afrofuture Center to develop a branding system for “Let ‘Em Know We Watching,” an anti-archive exploring the intersection of the Black quotidian and social media.
Questioning: when the process of pairing bluetooth devices won’t be so silly.
