about.

Typography enthusiast, tiny dancer, and frog fanatic.

/ˈreneˌäis/

Hello there! I am a design student at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, investigating the intersections of accessibility and storytelling. Community service and progressive action are central to my values as a user-focused designer.  Every day is comprised of millions of tiny, mundane moments. I want to work with people that aspire to simplify, amplify, or in any way make those moments meaningful.

Currently designing and prototyping a personal font Renais Sans. (This should be a hint ;))
