Syd Rein

Syd Rein is a designer, art director, and glasses-wearer so she has bad eyes, but a good eye. She has an affinity for alliteration, a mutt named Moseby,  and a commitment to CRJ and Cats (2019). She lives in Los Angeles and holds a BA with honors from UCLA Design/Media Arts and Theater. She feels weird that she wrote this bio in third person.
