Shortly after graduating from San Diego State University, I joined the wonderful Minted community. It was here that I discovered my passion for stationery design. I love creating cards for all sorts of occasions and celebrations, and I would describe my style as colorful, modern, and fun. In my free time, I love hanging out with my family and friends, playing with my dog, watching movies, and cooking! :)
