I have 8+ years of experience as a graphic designer. Over my career I have worked for newspapers, magazines, and communications companies, as well as with small business owners and entrepreneurs. I have had the opportunity to convert print magazines into tablet apps; create brochures, posters, and billboards; design the logos and branding for small businesses; and run social media campaigns.
I am a big picture thinker and making complicated ideas or stories come together clearly is why I fell in love with communications and design in the first place.
I believe that art is worth creating and beauty is worth pursuing. You can find me trying new things and learning from past experiences, because we don’t grow when we are comfortable.
I know that good design can make a meaningful impact on a business, a brand, and even a life, and I want to work with people who are brave and just a little bit crazy.
I'm available for freelance design and illustration work. Let's work together.
WHAT IS MY IDEAL JOB?
My dream job is one where I get to use my creativity daily, and spend most of my time solving problems visually--something that offers a variety of types of projects to work on. I like to work independently and I get a lot of pride and satisfaction from having a high level of responsibility in my projects, but I also enjoy having the opportunity to learn from my colleagues. And I don’t drink coffee, so an office that has a nice electric tea kettle would be a pretty big plus, too.
WHAT IS MY 5-YEAR PLAN?
Five years is a long time, and I hope my goals keep growing with me. I do know that over the next five years I want to learn new skills, work with talented and interesting people, and grow as a designer and as a person (Hey, if I’m setting a goal, it may as well be lofty.) At the end of five years, I’d like to be working where I still see new challenges and have enough variety in what I do day-to-day that my job stays interesting.
WHAT ARE SOME FUN FACTS ABOUT ME?
My favorite color depends on the day, my favorite typeface is (usually) Garamond, and I first used Adobe InDesign when I was 14 years old and working for my school newspaper.
