About Me



With a degree in Journalism and Studio Art, my experience in editorial design & publishing has given me a unique skillset & perspective. With an eye for all things visual, I'm able to see the big picture & help bring unique stories to life.

Midwest at heart,
world-wide dreamer

The Midwest will always be home. After growing up in northwest Indiana, going to college at Indiana University in Bloomington, I moved to Chicago where I began my design career. After missing the fresh air of my hometown, after a number of years I moved back while working remotely full-time. 

Even though I may be based in Michigan City, I'm able to travel virtually to places all across the country and world through my design. I seek inspiration from indie magazines, luxury brands, photographers, artists, and vintage advertisements. For a lifelong creative, the desire to be inspired never ends.
