I'm a professional designer based in New York. I found graphic design at an early age, knowing from that day forward that design would be at the forefront of whatever I would do. My parents instilled in me the desire to leave things better than I found them and to always strive for improvement...
Over the last 15 years, I have had the pleasure of working with a large variety of companies, design agencies, and universities. Along with working directly with many clients through my freelance work, I have worked alongside some amazing designers and art directors at various top design agencies and have played key roles working cross-functionally at various tech startups.
I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in Visual Communication Design from Eastern Washington University where I also completed a Minor in Business Administration. At EWU, I was on the Dean's List for the majority of the semesters and I was also awarded the Outstanding Student of the Year from the VCD faculty in 2014. I was selected to be a Teacher's Assistant / Tudor for the Program Leading to University Success for both Web Design and Visual Communication Design courses.
Prior to EWU, I attended the University of Washington where I was an undeclared undergraduate on a full academic scholarship that I earned by achieving academic success during High School. While at UW, I volunteered at the University District Food Bank, helping stock shelves, organizing inventory, and assisting customers through checkout.
I graduated from Wilbur High School where I was an active member of the school, sports, and community. I received the Senior Project of Excellence for my senior research presentation on childhood cancer, part of which I volunteered for multiple years for the Corinna Felker Drive for Cancer helping raise money to provide assistance to families struggling with a child battling cancer. I also volunteered for local little league sports as a referee, umpire, and line judge at different times, as well as helping build a new baseball field.
Here are some of the ideals that I have picked up over the years.
