I was born and raised in beautiful Colorado. Ready for a whole new experience, I went off to college in Des Moines, Iowa at Drake University. I took advantage of every design class offered there and fell in love with the creativity in advertising. I knew combining the two was what I wanted to do for a living.
While in college, I got the opportunity to study abroad in Galway, Ireland. During that time I kayaked a waterfall, ate sausage at Oktoberfest, saw Loch Ness, listened to a jazz band in Prague and celebrated the 250th anniversary of Guinness. I met many interesting people and saw beautiful places.
If I'm not glued to one of my Apple products, I can be found baking bread, line dancing, out for a run or reciting funny movie lines. I love laughing with my enjoyable family and playing harmless jokes on my friends. My iTunes library includes just about everything from Nat King Cole and Queen to Toby Keith and Beastie Boys.
As a designer, I start visualizing possibilities the second I hear the details of any project. I write down all my ideas before heading to the computer. I like to become as knowledgeable as possible in the content so I can create the strongest concept for the client and audience. I take care and pride in every piece of work I create.
