Download Resume

As a creative professional, I have worked for marketing agencies, corporations, and now my own business where I design, produce and manage projects; including brand identity, brochures, promotional campaigns, and websites, to name a few. By collaborating with copywriters, web developers, photographers and more I am able to craft a dynamic team to meet the needs of my clients. From concept to completion, I firmly believe that design can be – and should be – both beautiful and smart. I’m a Mizzou grad, Cardinals fan, lover of all things mid-century, and passionate volunteer for children and education.
