I'm KQ.

First & foremost 🇺🇸

But also 🇹🇼🇨🇳

With a spot of ðŸ‡¬ðŸ‡§

I'm a designer & art director living in Austin, TX.





My multi-disciplinary background allows me to concept and execute in RGB and CMYK from small elements to large spaces.


After living and working in London, UK for over 4 years, I've recently returned back to the States. Formally educated at Boston University '13 with my BFA in Graphic Design and MS in Media Ventures, I love design due to it's diverse and global presence from the fine arts to Silicon Valley to the film & music industry. I enjoy seeking inspiration from all avenues into my craft.  "Diversity is creativity’s biggest strength."


In my spare time, I'm bouldering, cycling, cooking or illustrating.
