Thanks for stopping by.

My name is Jenny, but you can call me Jenny.

I'm a designer currently pursuing my M.F.A. in Graphic Design at the Savannah College of Art and Design in Atlanta, Georgia.

While I'm fascinated by all things design, I'm drawn to UX because the [polygamous] marriage between form, function, and human behavior is a fascinating one.

My background in advertising fostered a love of storytelling in many formats, whether it was through a tv commercial or an engaging website.

My other interests include great white sharks, my dogs, spending time with my family, traveling, and rainbow sprinkles.
