Student Bio

Having come from a diverse background, my experiences yield the groundwork for my philosophies. Whether its a sign I pass on the road or a trip to another country, my inspiration is derived from the world around me. It's my hope that one day my work inspires others just as others' work has inspired me.‬

Artist Statement

With an interest in typography and the relation between its audience and purpose, my research in the MFA program at UTA will include cultural studies and the development of my own typefaces. ‬
