WHO AM I?
"We carry inside us the wonders we seek outside us." - Rumi
👋 Hi, my name is Jasmine! I received my B.A. in Communications with a minor in Professional Multimedia Writing at the University of California, Santa Barbara. I am what I've coined a creative explorer, as my background lies in journalism, marketing, communications, publishing, and the digital sphere. My experience is multi-disciplinary—all my various creative positions influence the work that I produce.
I love talking to people, so let's connect over a cup of coffee! In the meantime, browse my site and enjoy :)
Experienced in all sorts of writing—academic, journalistic, creative; for social media, for flyers, for memos and proposals and everything in between!
Self-taught in Adobe Creative Suite, and constantly learning and evolving my graphic design ~aesthetic~.
Instagram, Snapchat, Twitter, YouTube, Pinterest, Reddit—if there is a social media platform, I know it.
