I graduated from UW-Stout in December 2019 with a BFA in Graphic Design. While I was in school, I worked for a youth-led environmental organization as their lead graphic designer where I created logos and graphics for social media and marketing materials. I also got the opportunity to illustrate a children’s book about a rescued pit bull, which was heartwarming since our family dog is also a pit bull! It’s always been a dream of mine to use my degree for something as fun as children’s toys, so I’m extremely excited to be a part of the Animal Adventure team! I’ve had a passion for stuffed animals for as long as I can remember and it’s so nice to be working with other people who have the same passion.
Personal Facts: I grew up in northern California and moved to Minnesota at the start of 6th grade. Since I was a California kid, I went to Disneyland pretty regularly which has turned into an obsession for theme parks as an adult. I’m also a big toy collector, my room basically looks like a toy store, so essentially I’m a kid in a 6’3 body.
