Background

Summary

I’m a visual designer who’s enjoyed solving problems in many different mediums, but where I really thrive is connecting people with meaningful brand experiences. I bring a strategic approach to every project and I never settle for “good enough”. I continuously strive to meet internal business goals while more importantly being an advocate for the users I serve. I have a diverse background in design; creating work for print, environmental experience, apparel, web, mobile, and e-commerce.
