Hello There.

I am currently a Designer on the Payless Shoesource team at Barkley in Kansas City. I graduated from the University of Kansas in 2015 with a BFA in Design with a concentration in Visual Communication. I am interested in branding and identity, layout, packaging, and typography/ handlettering. My process typically starts with research and hand drawn sketches and then I make refinements with Adobe Illustrator, In-Design, 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, being outdoors, 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.

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”
