Presentation Designer & Illustrator


Hello! My name is Ellen and I specialize in presentation and icon design. As I've developed my skills, my passion for illustration has grown. I am drawn toward modern art and a minimalist approach. There is a beauty that comes from simplicity and a welcome challenge in designing it. I have a background in branding and presentation design, and continue to be inspired by my community here in the San Francisco Bay Area. I am currently working as a designer for Airbnb where I explore with innovative story telling and bringing delight to presentations. I'm a self proclaimed book worm, love a Wes Anderson film, and enjoy putting together stellar dinner parties with friends. I have a passion for running, traveling, and obsessing over French Bulldogs. I am a designer, an optimist, an explorer, and a modern woman looking to take on the world one challenge at a time.
