If you take a peek at the photos on this page, you’ll see that I’ve always been a maker, whether it was construction paper valentines in 3rd grade, or watercolor paintings of campus trees in college.
My drive to create isn’t a mystery, considering my dad was once an art teacher, my mom a painter, my grandmother a commercial artist. While my background is also in fine art, I began using computers to design and tell stories from an early age, always going “beyond the assignment” (as my teachers would say) to produce papers in high school. After earning a BFA in Graphic Design from the University of Evansville, I designed for a prominent advertising agency for 10 years, and have served as Art/Creative Director for Tucker Publishing Group since 2009, publishing two bimonthly magazines, annuals, and custom design projects. My skills are uniquely broad, as I also write, edit, proofread, manage social media, shoot photography, and much more.
For a full professional history with additional details, head on over to my LinkedIn page. To review examples of my work, I encourage you to view my online portfolio, which showcases some recent designs.
When I’m not pushing pixels or pencils, you might find me cuddling with my four cats, collecting vintage goods, eating pizza, or treasure hunting on a beach somewhere. Follow me on Instagram to see what I’ve been up to lately!
