I grew up in Swansea Massachusetts as a Luso-American from immigrant parents who arrived in the United States during the 1970s from São Miguel, Azores. I currently have 20 years of professional Art Direction and Graphic Design experience across various categories and industries. My work is inspired by personal experience and my desire to connect to others who may relate to my journey. Things I love include: my family, travel, rollercoasters, live music, beaches with clear blue water, having conversations with strangers to find out we have more in common than expected, everything Halloween except for the day itself, and dance. I trained in Hip Hop/Street Jazz style dances for 20 years. If any of this speaks to you, please reach out. I’d love to work with you!
