Hello There.

I am currently a freelance graphic designer based in Kansas City. I am passionate about branding and identity, and how that system rolls out across digital and print applications (websites, social media, brand collateral, brochures, event signage—you name it!). I also have experience with photo retouching and I dabble in code and animation. My process typically starts with research and hand drawn sketches and then I make refinements with Adobe Illustrator, InDesign, and Photoshop to render and layout designs.

When I am not exploring creative solutions for a project, I enjoy cooking with ingredients from my garden, taking my dogs to the park to be my disc golf companions, basically all DIY projects, and volunteering in the local community through organizations like the American Advertising Federation (AAF-KC), KC Design Week, and The Ugly Christmas Sweater Party benefitting Operation Breakthrough.

Check out my resume.

Always design a thing by considering it in its next larger context—a chair in a room, a room in a house, a house in a environment, an environment in a city plan.
