A graphic designer at CCA, Leah brings immense creativity and joyous energy to the team, not to mention refreshing ideas and up-to-the-minute skills in animation and illustration.
Leah graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in graphic design from the University at Buffalo, where she developed a specific passion for five-second animations and digital design. Initially a computer science major, Leah realized her need to express her creativity and discovered how to pair her love of STEM with art that is just as vibrant as her hair. During her time at UB, she worked for the New York City Department of Education, assisting NYC high school seniors with their post-secondary plans. She also worked as a social media manager and designer at Aequitas Tax, where she redesigned their online presence.
A daughter of Dominican immigrants, Leah enjoys creating work that is representative of her culture and others. She is also a digital artist who loves illustrating women of color. Outside work, Leah can be found with her three cats—Kiki, Manchy, and Leo—and reading her vast collection of unread novels.
