My name is Jael and I’m a budding young female creative, ready to take on the world.

I started out as a graphic designer, but found my love for art direction thanks to D&AD.

I like to create work that can inspire and hopefully trigger change. 

I have a deep interest in societal issues and I'm always looking for

innovative ways to create solutions for them.

My hunger and drive is what pushes me forward every single day.
