In late 2012 I earned my BFA in graphic design, focusing on print and identity. My favorite areas of design include typography, lettering/calligraphy, systems, book arts, handcraft, sketching/illustration, and traditional print methods. I am highly detail oriented and truly seek to understand a problem fully in order to solve it effectively.

Before I went back to school for graphic design to explore my life-long love of visual expression, I worked in production manufacturing quality engineering, which helped hone my senses of organization, attention to detail, problem-solving, and customer/supplier relationships. I worked in both small and large companies across a variety of industries.

In my free time, I love to draw and paint, go to the gym, cook and bake, read, and visit museums and art galleries. I am inspired by the outdoors, many forms of expression (e.g. fashion, literature, tattoo, art, film), travel, humor, and culture. Read Less
