I'm a passionate graphic designer striving every day towards creating better possibilities for clients, and myself, by pushing limits and exceeding goals.
I work daily on executing creative within brand for large corporations. I have also led with clients to establish and carry-through branding for smaller and mid-sized companies and start-ups. My experience in marketing creative helps me to produce work that is consistent, professional and effective.
Through my cumulative experiences at Tweyen and through various freelance projects, I've harnessed my focus on detail with client and team feedback. Maximizing purpose with hierarchy, typography, composition, writing, brand and creativity are of particular importance to me as a designer.
I am proficient in Adobe Creative Suite 6 and Microsoft Office and have a basic, but comprehensive, understanding of HTML and CSS.
When I'm not designing chances are you'll find me cooking, crafting, or training for another race, triathlon, or working to set new personal records at my local Crossfit box.
