I am a Seattle-based web and graphic designer with over 8 years of experience.

After many all-nighters and exact-o injuries, I received my M.F.A. in Graphic Design from the Savannah College of Art and Design in 2010. I’ve had the opportunity to work with clients like X-Box, Microsoft, T-Mobile, Coca-Cola, Sports Illustrated, PGA Tour, Chrysler, Nike, CenturyLink, Sephora, Cartoon Network, and Colliers.

When not staring deep into the soul of my computer, I enjoy going to concerts, baking cookies, backpacking and training to be a certified sailboat Skipper. To be fair though, I also spend a decent amount of time drinking wine and talking about what I would be doing if I had more free time.
