B.F.A., Graphic Design, California State University, Sacramento
How did you get here?
I began my academic career in community college at Sierra College in Rocklin, CA where I earned two skills certificates in Visual Arts & Media and Graphic Design as well as my Associate of Arts in Applied Art & Design while completing an unpaid internship as a designer for the nonprofit radio station KVMR in Nevada City, CA. I then transferred to Sacramento State where I applied and was accepted into their Graphic Design Program and earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Graphic Design while working as a designer for Associated Students Inc. at Sac State. I am thrilled to now be in a career position as a graphic designer for the number one public university in the world!
Who do you work with? What’s cool about your job?
I have a unique split role as a designer for both Berkeley Career Engagement and Creative Lab in the Student Union. I love the variety of projects I get to work on, the challenge and problem-solving aspect of design, and applying what I have learned in school in my job duties every day. I get to see the direct impact of the work that I do and support students’ growth.
What’s the best career advice anyone has given you?
The simplest solution is often the most difficult to obtain, but is often the most elegant, effective, and aesthetically pleasing.
Camping, hiking, backpacking, cycling, creating and performing music, collecting vinyl, reading, type design, photography, furniture and architecture, and everything mid-century modern.
