As our team’s lead designer, I produce all materials used for marketing and maintain our brand’s standards across the physical and digital worlds. With a degree in Graphic Design, I love flexing my skills and applying them to real estate. I love creating an identity for a building, and seeing my work all over the city is a nice perk!When I am not working, I love doing photography. I enjoy getting to do freelance photoshoots for all walks of life. Also, giving someone a unique experience to commemorate an event where they felt like the most beautiful center of attention is one of my favorite things to do in my downtime.
What is your favorite neighborhood? Why?
For me, Lincoln Park offers the best of both worlds. Having grown up next to a forest preserve, I love that I can escape to the parks and lakefront trails when I need a little break from the concrete jungle. I also love that the shops and restaurants you pass are genuinely unique to the neighborhood.
What is your favorite restaurant? Do you have a go-to order?
Las Mananitas in Boystown. Their Simplemente Burrito is to die for. It’s the perfect balance of everything a burrito should have. Plus, their complimentary chips and salsa are the best I’ve ever had! And their house margarita always makes the experience a fun one.
What is your favorite coffee shop or bar? Choose one and why?
Maison Marcel in Lakeview. Combining the smell of freshly baked pastries with the visual experience of shabby boho-chic creates an atmosphere unlike any other in the city. Their French-American fusion menu is absolutely delicious, and their home-brewed coffee always hits the spot.
What do you enjoy/love about living in Chicago? Why?
The different energies each neighborhood offers. No matter what vibe you’re feeling that weekend, Chicago will deliver.
