My drive to create isn’t a mystery, considering my dad was an art teacher, my mom a painter, and my grandmother a commercial artist. I emerged as a visual storyteller from an early age, going “beyond the assignment” (as teachers would say) to write and design papers, each pixel holding as much weight as every word.
After earning a BFA in Graphic Design from the University of Evansville, I led the digital media department of an advertising agency. Later I was the Art / Creative Director at a regional lifestyle magazine, defining the creative and digital strategy for bimonthly publications, books, and custom projects, before becoming the Creative Director / Content Editor for a national food media online magazine. Currently I have the dual position of Senior Designer / Marketing and Communications Manager at Milepost.
My skills are uniquely broad as a designer so I’m known for wearing multiple hats in any given role. Over the course of my career I’ve led creative teams, planned editorial and digital content, written and edited articles, managed social media and websites, proofread (just call me “Eagle Eye”), directed photo/video shoots, occasionally illustrated, and even carved logos in food.
When I’m not pushing pixels or pencils, you might find me painting (gouache and watercolor), cuddling with our three cats, gardening, collecting vintage goods, or treasure hunting on a beach somewhere. Follow me to see what I’ve been up to lately!
