Hello! I’m Melissa

I’m a sunshine-seeking, design-loving, flag-football-playing, coffee-inhaling PNW native currently based out of Southern California.

I graduated with a degree in Visual Communication from Seattle Pacific University, and have a strong interest in digital marketing, illustration and creative leadership.
