I go by a of lot titles. Here are some: artist, graphic designer, photographer, vocalist, musician, music booking agent, "that girl who sang in that one band".... you get the idea.
I was born and raised in the mountains of Northern California, spending the winters snowboarding and my summers hiking into the Sierra Nevadas –and there were two things I was never lacking:
my camera and the incessant need to sing (and drive everyone around me crazy).
In 2015, I graduated Chico State University with a Bachelor's Degree in Music (with an emphasis in Industry & Technology) and a minor in Art Studio. I'm a self taught Photoshop and Illustrator user, but still always have my nose in a good ol' traditional sketchbook. I've always set my sights high when it comes to art and music, and am proud to say that I have worked dream jobs at places like Hopeless Records, Vans Warped Tour, and Snowglobe Music Festival. I even became a founding board member on the music booking board at 1078 Gallery: music and art venue, alongside singing in my own band, Tionesta.
"Rekkless Effekt" has been the name of the space on the internet where I am able to express myself for almost 10 years. My vision is to make art that defies normality and social standards. Art that is loud, art that makes you turn around and listen. With an emphasis on combining my love for the outdoors, live music, and originality of the self, I aim to express not only my own ideas but help amplify those of others like me - the outcasts, the punks, and the free thinkers.
This space I carved out for myself in the world is your's to explore, judge, love, hate, consider me for a job (ideally), whatever you've got. Take your time and thanks for stopping by!
