Let's be friends.

I'm Alexa, the designer behind ABC&D.

If you asked 8-year-old Alexa what she wanted to be when she grew up, she would have told you about her dreams to be an animator for Disney and then asked you if you wanted to see her portfolio (for real). When I turned 12, I fell in love with magazines and sharing stories, so I decided then and there that one day I would study journalism at the University of North Carolina.

I've been passionate about visual design and storytelling essentially my entire life, and I'm not afraid to dream big.

My friends say that my "true self" comes out while watching the Carolina-Duke game, so it's safe to say I'm a pretty passionate sports fan (and yes, I'm still riding that National Championship high). I'll travel far and wide to see my friends and family, or go to a Beyoncé concert. And the best nights finish with a glass of Merlot or a margarita.

I currently live in the Pacific Northwest with my husband who serves in the U.S. Navy and our black lab, Sullie. When I'm not designing or building my business, you can find me teaching group fitness classes, reading a good book, or spending time with friends and family.

 

I've got a deep love for basketball, Beyoncé, and red wine — so if you were looking for a conversation starter, you've got it!
