I fell in love with design at a young age and ran with it to college where I received my BS in photography with a minor in graphic communications. I now have 3+ years of professional design experience and my love only grows stronger!

Ideal team

I like smaller, focused teams that are genuine and happy to work together. I'm more comfortable with a relaxed, yet organized, management style. It's important to complete tasks on time, but also to feel present and comfortable.
