About me


Hi I am Avery!

Artist. Designer. Photographer. Music Enthusiast.


I believe in sincere moments and kindness over coolness. Connecting with others is what I do best.

At the moment I reside in St. Petersburg Florida, but don't let the distance keep us from connecting.

Lets create something wonderful.
