About

Hello, I'm Kelsey Lesko.

 
kelseylesko-bio

Massachusetts born, Virginia raised. I believe that design has a social and cultural purpose to help others, to inform, and to inspire. When I'm not designing you'll likely find me printing, building, painting, hiking, traveling, cooking, or exploring.
