My passion for creative and design has been a part of who I am since I was little. As my family would agree, I always had a crayon, marker, pencil, or some other drawing tool in my hand...I was always drawing. That drawing tool was replaced with a mouse at Cardinal Stritch University where I graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts with an emphasis in graphic design. Since then I have worked as a graphic designer and illustrator in the Sheboygan and Milwaukee area. I am always looking for ways to express my creative side doing freelance work. I have experience in nearly all print media such as collateral (logos, stationary, business cards, brochures), publication (newspaper and magazine advertising and publication design) and outdoor (banners and signage). I focus on print design and illustration. I am in the process of learning web design and interactive design. I love art and design and I strive to learn more and continue to grow as a designer. I have experience with a mix of small and large organizations has provided me the ability to understand the unique needs of a small business, the foresight for growing business, and what it takes to maintain or launch a brand, product or service for large business. Specialties: advertising, art, customer relations, graphic design, editing, layout design, marketing materials, newspaper, printing, illustration
