This portfolio showcases some of my graphic design work, as well as a video down below.
Experimental Designs From My UC Riverside Internship
During my summer (2007) working at UC Riverside’s LGBT Resource Center, I made my first foray into graphic design. I was really surprised with what I came up with. Though I have learned some new tricks since then, I still look back on this collection with pride. Unfortunately, I don’t think many of these designs have been put to use at UCR.

Designs From Graduate School
Here are just a few designs from my graduate studies and graduate assistantship. I didn’t have many opportunities to design, but I did generate a couple fun ideas. I was particularly proud of the chalkboard design I was able to utilize for one of my workshop fliers. The other designs are for aspects of my classwork, including an intervention I designed with colleagues and my capstone work.

Designs From My Blog
Obviously, starting my own blog gave me plenty of opportunities for graphic design, though I didn’t realize it at first. I ended up using the original logo I designed for my blog to inspire logos for various other features and collections I developed. In October 2009, I started exploring with themed logos for holidays and special occasions. The collection is ongoing.

Video: Spring Break in Brazil
As part of my graduate assistantship, I had the joy of serving as a teaching assistant on a spring break study abroad in Brazil. In addition to supporting the students in their learning about race, culture, and society, I also made it my goal to capture a “behind the scenes” look at their trip. In other words, what does it look like when students are on a study abroad trip? This photo collage is the product of that experiment. (Runtime is 10:26.)
