I am a self-motivated worker passionate about verbal and visual forms of communication. I hope to join a hard working artistic team where I can grow as an individual and as a team member.


I graduated from Whitman College in May 2018 with a degree in English Literature. Throughout my time in college, I studied both literature and the visual arts. I studied language both in a theoretical atmosphere, reading literature theory and fiction, as well as writing creative essays and poetry. My passion for literature expands beyond the text and into archival and physical manifestations of literature. These manifestations include both work in a library as well as theatre production.

My experience in the visual arts is expansive. While in school, I studied drawing, printmaking, and sculpture.
