Keepin’ it creative since 2005




I come from a family with an almost destructive work ethic. I did not escape this trait, and am currently writing this bio on a beautiful Saturday afternoon, much to my husband’s chagrin. Productivity keeps me sane, and I work best when under pressure. Originally from Arlington, VA, I relocated to Colorado in 2007.


Professionally, I split my time between two worlds. I enjoy producing a wide range of print projects for small educational publishers, but also relish in the creativity that web-based marketing allows. I currently spend a few hours a day at a high-end cycling retailer, designing emails and other web marketing pieces.


Ideally, I’d like to expand my repertoire a bit. I’m lucky in that I really enjoy what I do for a living, but I’d like to exercise my design muscles with some new types of projects—packaging, branding, and maybe even some more web design. I’m seeking freelance, contract, or part-time design and illustration work.
