ABOUT

With experience in publishing and marketing design, I know how to effectively communicate your message for your audience.

I am a midwest transplant who now works and resides in beautiful Boise, Idaho. I graduated from Grand View University in Des Moines, Iowa with a degree in graphic design while also studying traditional methods of art, such as painting and drawing. My art and graphic design work has been recognized and awarded by various organizations, including the notable Art Directors Association of Iowa.

When I'm not creating, I enjoy spending time outdoors with my wife and dog. I stay active by running, biking, skiing, and rock climbing. I am also a proud consumer and moral supporter of local produce, breweries, coffee shops and taco trucks.
