India, after the Salsa singer La India, not the country, or the tertiary character in Gone With the Wind. I am from Washington Heights, New York City and have a scary enthusiasm toward Jane Austen appropriations, horror movies, The Tony's, and classic films of every genre.
I graduated from California College of the Arts with a BFA in Graphic Design in 2015.
Design challenges me artistically. With every new project I'm able to experiment with many different ways of working. My passion is ever changing but centered around the themes of inclusion and exclusion.
I'm driven by the continuous need to strive for my "what and why". I'm slowly putting together the pieces of my purpose. What I have found so far is that I'm eternal through my history and the history of others and eternal through what I choose to put out into the world.
My work focuses around different topics from the inclusions and exclusions that I've felt in my life and how they stir different emotions and words within me. I have worked in print, web and motion. Writing is my favorite medium because it describes itself and tells me the form it wants to take when it comes to design.

ALA Convention 2015
The American Library Association (ALA) is the oldest and largest library association in the world. Founded on October 6, 1876 during the Centennial Exposition in Philadelphia, the mission of ALA is “to provide leadership for the development, promotion and improvement of library and information services and the profession of librarianship in order to enhance learning and ensure access to information for all.”
I volunteered at the Harry Potter Alliance booth to help more schools sign up for chapters around the country and sell merchandise that funds the non-profit.
