Hi There! I'm Jeanette, a multi-disciplinary creative based in California.
I specialize in spatial, experiential, and visual designs with a focus on interactive storytelling interwoven with environmental designs. I love designing to expose different forms of experiences, whether emotional or bodily because what makes a design special, is its ability to engage and transform someone forever!
