Social Media Assistant / Photographer
“aka Grandma Dez, knit whiz and Hidden House Coffee Maker"
Deziree or Dez, is a recent photography graduate from The Art Institute, with a vibrant interest in graphic design and coffee! It was actually at a local coffee shop where she first discovered her passion and experience in the world of social media. Dez was given free range of creating content and marketing for the shop, while also developing her skills in coffee making and customer service.
From there, she had the opportunity to intern at a television broadcast network, where she worked with a team of creatives to create content ranging from video editing, to graphic design, to photography; all for the network’s social media platforms.
Nowadays, Dez is our social media assistant by day and coffee maker for Hidden House by weekend! In her free time (when she isn’t working on her portfolio), Dez loves exploring diverse and new coffee shops, slinging lattes in latte art competitions (yes it’s a thing), and knitting (yes, you read the word “knitting”) while listening to her favorite podcasts.
Inheriting some grandma-esque traits (like the knitting), Dez is often endearingly called, “Grandma Dez.” She has a heart for everyone and loves meeting new people and spending time with them. She has a knack for showing people how loved they are and is in constant pursuit of things that bring her joy and challenge her to grow.
