The Midwest produces a lot of corn, cheese, beer, and football. But occasionally, it spits out a misfit creative (hi). A happy childhood raised in a small house with a large family taught me how to negotiate, compromise, love, stand up for myself, and most importantly - how to carve out my own space in this world. Never doubting what I wanted to be when I grew up, I set out to pave my path. Here I am, years later having accumulated what feels like a lifetime of art direction and design experience. Being challenged and discovering new ways to use my creative talent energizes me. I look forward to working with people from all walks of life, and in this field, those are plenty. You can find my history steeped in many worlds: advertising, branding, publishing, photography and illustration. My end goal is to tell incredible stories by creating dynamic visual content.


I make a living doing what I love; that is not by luck, it is by design.



I'm not only an art director and graphic designer, I'm also a maker of things (check out my paper creations), fierce protector of family, trail hiker and sun-shine soaker, furry animal cuddler, aspire to write my own fiction book someday, and often engage in deep guttural laughs with friends over a spirit or two. I like to think I can do it all, but most days are a reality check. Welcome to my beautiful mess, please ignore the coffee stain and pet hairs.
