I have been interested in the arts and design for as long as I can remember. When I was a child I started my creative career with a black permanent marker on a toilet and again with a half-eaten carrot on a white wall in my parents' hallway. Since then I've used more accepted and traditional mediums as an outlet for my expression, exploring various avenues for art and design.
I strive to grow in my creative ability to give glory to God, bless others, and show how the visual arts can be honoring to the Lord, pure, thought-provoking, raw, and authentic. Every project I undertake is a challenge to grow my skills and resources as a designer. Whether I'm modifying colors to achieve the best palette, arranging a layout to perfectly display information, or putting the final touches on a logo, I do my best to make sure every project on which I work shows how much fun I had making it.
I'm based in the West Coast but I love to travel! I'm proficient in the main Adobe programs: Photoshop, Illustrator, Lightroom, and InDesign. I make things for print collateral, digital screens, social media, apparel, and photography.
