My mission is to do work that matters.
I am a fast learner and approach everything I do with an incredible amount of dedication, curiosity, compassion, and enthusiasm. Where I belong is in a collaborative environment and I view my clients as partners. These amazing partners have allowed me to create work that I'm incredibly proud of. I don't view myself or my skills as "tools" but as a co-owned service. I pride myself on listening deeply and not only identifying problems but creatively solving them.
I graduated from Iowa State University with my BFA in Graphic Design and from the School of Visual Arts with my MFA in Design for Social Innovation. Different full-time positions in education, non-profit, and corporate sectors and freelance work for every industry in between have put what I studied into professional application. The best organizations I've partnered with are those who are doing important work; mission-aligned businesses that give back to their community, founders that are committed to sustainably and ethically made goods, small-business owners with mouths to feed at home, women and BIPOC owned enterprises that are changing the game. These are a few of my favorite things.
