What I read

Big reader and supporter of blogs! Constantly reading articles, news, and information I can get my hands on. Memoirs are my favorite books. Right now I am reading Contagious and The Design of Everyday Things.

Side projects

Currently into watercolor. I have been taking online tutorials on how to create patterns and textures. I am hoping that any type of painting or drawing will help my digital designing skills.

Ideal team

1-2 client pers team. It's always nice to see two opposite people come together and form an amazing business. Prefer a laid back atmosphere with strong attention to the overall big picture
