I git innit 

With a visionary passion for curating experiential events within the fashion and entertainment industries, my expertise lies within the field of communications, where I have strategically developed the best PR practices for various brands. I have additionally assisted many of these brands with on-site creative production.


Coupled with my experience as a lead producer and creative director, I now look forward to evolving my skills, seeking to bridge the gap between tech and my previous experience as a software engineer.

Dear Love Letters is a virtual pen pal app connecting people through feelings + healing. Open letters for people to read anonymously that they then can connect with if they want to keep in touch. This app was created with multiple SQL relationships models between the penpal, feelings, and herbs that linked to the feeling. My focus was more so on the front-end so I used Bulma and Sass to make the app look aesthetically pleasing.
