I was a poet before a designer, but I couldn't really be one without the other. Even before I learned how to craft my own visual pieces, I was already designing, in a way—I'd shape my poems with care, delicately drawing out inspiration while still making something of my own. But once I learned that I didn't have to be good at drawing and painting to make my own visuals (a huge relief) I immediately fell in love with graphic design.
Most of my work has been collaborative in nature, working with other teams like The ReMarker, my high school newspaper, or MINT magazine, Stanford's fashion and culture magazine. In my sophomore year, I published my book, Beyond the Edge, which was my big push to put all my work up until 2014 together into one project. See it here: Beyond the Edge.
