Experience



GRAPHIC DESIGNER (present)


Graphic Designer in the Development Office at Harlem Academy, a private school in Harlem.


I work on print as well as digital media. One of my major projects was a complete redesign of their website harlemacademy.org. See more about this project.



TAKE THIS WITH YOU ZINE CO-FOUNDER & LEAD GRAPHIC DESIGNER (2019- present)


Co-founder and lead graphic designer for Take This With You, a free educational zine and social media resource which serves as a "beginner's guide to social justice".


Along with my partner, Alexia Leclercq, I researched and wrote the original zine, and I fully designed the first issue. This project has since evolved into a social media initiative, with Take This With You operating primarily as an instagram page that continues the conversations started with the original production. We are dedicated to taking conversations of social justice out of inaccessible, elitist spaces and offering everyone proper access to the information and resources necessary to push forward the ideals of equity and justice for all.
