Hi, I’m Leah. I’m a visual and interactive designer working in New York and a graduate from Syracuse University. Growing up in a multi-cultural family and community has taught me the importance of being an active listener and attentive observer. My insatiable curiosity for other people and cultures is what draws me to design – I use my creative and problem-solving skills to help nonprofits and organizations make a difference in the world. In my free time, I enjoy hiking the trails of the Adirondacks, fueling my love of coffee, traveling, and reading good books.

I am an interdisciplinary artist and art educator from Spain. I earned my MFA in Intermedia from Arizona State University. I use art and design as tools to explore the relationship between different aspects of a particular system or situation (political, social, discursive, emotional) how they affect one another, our lives, conditions, and how we deal with the resulting tensions. My aesthetic and academic practices combine digital media, installation, design and illustration. My work has been exhibited nationally and internationally, and I have taught in universities, non profits, cultural centers, and other organizations of Madrid, Spain, Phoenix, Washington State, Chicago.
