About


photo of leah

My name is Leah Garber and I was born and raised in Richmond, Virginia. I am a graduate from James Madison University with a Media Arts and Design major, Converged Media concentration, and a Studio Art minor.

I am thoughtful, energetic, and a lifelong learner. I have a passion for functional and beautiful design, and I hope to pursue a career in the web and graphic design industry after graduation. I am always excited to gain knowledge from those already out there.
