Hello! I’m Katie!
I am a professional Graphic Designer and Photographer. I am a proud summa cum laude graduate of the University of Houston with a BFA in Graphic Communications and a minor in Art History.
Since graduating, I have worked for marketing agencies in and around Houston. I have helped businesses and clients develop their brand systems while growing their design/marketing pieces from start to finish. I continue to help brands communicate with those around them and reach out to their ideal customers.
Currently I am pursuing my Masters degree in Brand Management and Communications in Milan.

Developing my Photography
I owe it all to my father. His father taught him photography and developing photographs in a light room. I quickly showed interest in his camera ‘gadgets’ that he possesses. Some of his camera’s that he still owns and uses are from his father in the 1940’s. Shortly after, he began to teach me about cameras and photography styles.
I was only 12 years old when he got me my first point and shoot Nikon® camera. Nothing that had any magical bells and whistles but something I could easily take with me to friends and family parties to practice. This was my first digital camera. I would then proceed to go to the local Wal-greens with my saved money and developed my photos. We then would sit together and share some of our favorites that we took of that day, looking at the different angles and cropping of the photos.
Once I was enrolled in university, I upgraded to a DSLR and my life has not been the same since. My collection continues to grow, and me and my father continue to compete with each other on our photos. No one really wins, but the competition is always fun.
