I am a multimedia designer with strong skills in designing and creating visual communications that articulate the clients’ ideas and intended messages. Much of my work has appeared as various print publications combining appealing compositions and readable content. I also have experience collaborating with educators to design instructional materials in informal settings; e.g., promotional course materials, websites, and informational literature.
I completed my MA in Educational Studies in New Media and New Literacies in winter 2019, developing a strong interest in instructional design—a different aspect of design that allows me to work and collaborate with educators in creating and presenting ways to learn using different media. As part of my graduation requirements, I collaborated with a University of Michigan professor in designing a learning portal, Kakuma Youth Opportunities to Lifelong Learning. The website offers information, resources, and an informal learning environment for the youth completing secondary school in Kakuma Camp in Kenya.
I currently work as a communications editor at the International Institute at the University of Michigan, supporting four of its nineteen centers and programs. I provide consultation, advice, and services in crafting collaterals and publicity, communications strategy, and web editing.
