I’m a designer.

But that’s not where my skills end; I’m also a writer, a thinker, and an explorer. I live life to the fullest by working hard and playing hard.


 
Personal Statement

I have a thorough knowledge of the essentials of visual communication and have effectively utilized my skills through a variety of freelance work and professional design positions. Design is a broad term; it encompasses a variety of visual media including print design and advertising campaigns, as well as online marketing and development. I consider myself a designer because I excel in all of these areas. I look forward to the many exciting challenges that this industry presents.


 
Background

Receiving degrees in both Graphic Design and Creative Advertising from Drake University helped me form the building blocks needed to succeed, but it wasn’t until I started my career that my skill set began to take on a whole new dynamic. Nothing drives my design aesthetic forward more than reviewing old work and seeing how much I’ve improved over time. It’s encouraging to see how my style has matured over the years, but I still have a lot to learn…and I’m ready to tackle that adventure head on.
