Custom-designed pocket notebooks for my senior BFA show.

From designing and coding to managing projects, I put extraordinary care into every detail of my work.

Since graduating with my BFA in Graphic Design, I’ve spent over two years building professional agency experience as a designer & web developer. I’ve successfully handled a variety of client projects across web, branding, user experience, and print design.

My work in the field has helped me become more creative, organized, and thorough, and I strive to apply these qualities in all aspects of my career.

Currently, I’m working as a web designer with the University of Washington. In this temporary role, I develop user-friendly design concepts, wireframes, and mockups, help implement these into the content management system, and advocate best practices in design.

I fell in love with digital and interactive design while pursuing my degree from The University of Akron’s Myers School of Art. During my time at UA, I was involved in the school’s in-house design studio, managed the Myers School of Art’s website, and won local and regional ADDY awards for my brand identity work.

Outside of design, I have a keen interest in new music, art, and travel, and these experiences inspire my creative work. I also enjoy writing on my blog to reflect on topics I’m passionate about.

Expertise

Web design

I aim to create beautiful and highly usable web experiences. Working from concept to execution, my process includes sketching and wireframing to designing high-fidelity mockups and prototypes. Whether I’m working on a full-fledged site redesign, making improvements to existing pages, or generating ideas for new content modules, web design is at the heart of what I do.

Web development

I help build and maintain websites by coding clean and semantic HTML, CSS, Sass, and PHP. I develop with content management systems such as WordPress and Drupal, use versioning tools including Git and Bitbucket, and value strong code organization & documentation. I’m always seeking to learn and deepen my core front-end programming skills through reading, workshops, and collaboration.

Branding & digital design

I enjoy creating new brand identities and developing visuals as part of existing guidelines. My graphic design background and advertising experience help me best approach logo design, illustration, content design, and more. I design assets and campaigns across platforms that create emotion and bring forward your brand’s essence.
