ABOUT THE BLOG
smuug is a lifestyle blog where I talk about home interiors, digital design, fashion and even beauty; you know life stuff.
I have a very specific aesthetic, I’ve always been drawn to simple and modern items. My absolute favorite thing to do is travel and discover new (to me) lands and cultures. I love to laugh and get along with most people. I’m pretty open minded and believe that we all have the right to choose what we believe and do. I do me, and you do you!
I was born and raised in east Tennessee and I’ve lived in Chicago, IL, Atlanta, GA, Washington, DC, Yukon, OK and as of now Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, where I’ve been since 2008.
ABOUT MY WORK
I attended a private art school in Chicago, IL. Although my focus at the time was fashion design, I discovered that I was more interested in graphics.
For the past 9 years I’ve freelanced, working with WordPress development, design and branding. I also own smuug pins, which is a high quality enamel pin brand focused on Saudi culture. Each pin is hand drawn, then illustrated. In 2017 I started working for a small creative studio based in Riyadh, where I work as a graphic designer, WordPress designer and product developer.
