Experienced Translator
BFA Graphic Design / Photography

Having spent a year and a half living over seas I was able to refine my translation skills and gain a deeper understanding of another culture. Translating is not only making yourself understood, but expressing the emotion of words in the target language, recreating experiences.

Visual communication is much the same, and I love finding beautiful and uncommon ways to get the point across through design and photography.
