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.

That said I'm a strong believer in doing the things that scare you because that is what allows you to grow. While my comfort is absolutely being behind the slides it was great to experience standing in front of them. If anything its provided me with a better understanding of what it's like to be on the other side of a process that I work with every day...
