Green Owl Design

An Ongoing Friendship

When I first met Erica Riggio of Green Owl Design, it was a chance meeting upon my stumbling upon the 2nd Annual Downtown Hyattsville Arts Festival. Then, a senior student at UMD seeking an internship, little did I know I would work on-and-off with Erica over the years, develop a fruitful long-lasting friendship, curate an exhibition for her gallery called "Hidden Images," and that she would encourage a shared love for all-things-design.

As I work in an adjacent field of community development, I've been honored to assist Erica in her transition from an individual businesswoman to a firm of interior designers, and in the process, it's been a pleasure to watch her grow her team into a companion full-fledged boutique that has benefited from my recommendations in branding and marketing tactics.

Telamon Corporation

Planting Seeds in the Community

The mother of a close friend of mine worked with Telamon Corporation, a non-profit that assisted immigrants locate farm industry employment throughout the region. As Telamon increased its tabling at employment fairs, she requested my services designing a custom tri-fold tabletop banner that would engage attendees.

Pride Alliance LGBT Student Organization

Work to be 'Proud' Of

I was thrilled to serve as Marketing Coordinator during my time at the University of Maryland's LGBT Student Organization (GSA), the Pride Alliance. During this time, I designed fliers for the organization and managed its website and social media presence. Specifically, my team lead a rally for domestic partnership rights, honored the Transgender Day of Remembrance, organized a music event series, and I curated a gallery event in the Student Union's student organization lobby called "Proudly Coloring Outside the Lines" as part of the LGBT recognition month.

Hyattsville Community Development Corporation

A Mission of Revitalization

I am thankful that with my work as the Economic Development Coordinator for the Hyattsville CDC, I was able to put my graphic design services to a public use for 6.5 years! I created websites, maps, custom fliers, newsletters, guides, and the like. Of note here are designs I've created or adapted for collaborative programs, like the Gateway Arts District promotional website, MyGatewayArts.org, and the CDC's own Downtown Hyattsville Arts Festival.
