Hello.

Growing up in Louisville, Kentucky, I developed an affection for life's simple pleasures, like drinking sun tea and front porch sittin'. These impromptu moments to pause and absorb the world around me with awe and admiration have become essential to my design process. As a professional designer and an educator, I focus on opportunities to balance individual curiosity, empathy-driven inquiry and effective communication of complex ideas.

A graduate of Tyler School of Art's MFA graphic and interactive design program, I currently teach at Philadelphia University and moonlight as a freelance designer and illustrator. Always open to new opportunities, I welcome the chance to collaborate with you in your creative endeavors. Please feel free to email me with any inquiries.
