I have called Dallas, Texas my home since the moment I was born— only taking a brief leave of absence to attend Ouachita Baptist University in Arkansas from 2014 to 2018. During those four years, I learned what independence from the world and full dependence on the Lord looks like. Though I’ve known Christ since I was 6 years old, I didn’t begin perusing a genuine relationship with Him until the summer after my Freshman year of college. That summer radically changed my life because it was the first time I was able to embrace the identity God had given me so many years earlier.
Three years later, I headed back to Dallas with a degree in graphic design and a calling to use my love for art and design to directly impact His Kingdom. My previous job refined this calling and led me to my current position. As a graphic designer at Watermark, I feel I am fulfilling my calling and am able to give my gifts back to the One who gave them to me.
