Design + Photography + Motion Graphics
Hi! I’m Leah. I’m passionate about using design to educate and inspire others.
My background in fine art and classical music have shaped my discipline as a designer and fostered a deep understanding of the power of collaboration. This imaginative foundation is also likely the driving force behind my mildly dramatic self-portraits.
Have an idea? I'd love to help bring it to life.

I have been working in the field of marketing and design for five years, beginning an early career while still earning my degree. I credit my growth and achievements to my relentless pursuit of opportunities and a fearless ambition to meet them. This mindset has allowed me to continually broaden and strengthen my skill set as a creative and as a professional. I have experience designing for print, online, and television media and frequently balance working across these platforms simultaneously.
When I'm not working, you can find me photographing my miniature dachshund, watching my husband fix a car or compete in beer-league sports, or documenting my Instagram-famous/pianist/composer brother.
