Briefly stated? I communicate messages to audiences. I often do this via the tangible form of ink on paper, but increasingly also via digital media. My style tends to be very clean.
I have a good sense for visual hierarchy and typography. As an English major turned graphic designer, I am strong in both the written and visual aspects of communication.
I work well independently, and I am by many accounts "quiet." You're more likely to find me researching plants for my garden than discussing a sporting event.
I currently reside in Chicago, IL, where I attended university and got my first job as a coordinator at a marketing agency. Secretly jealous of the creatives there and their cool jobs, I took a couple years of additional classes to transition to graphic design. Opportunities since then have taken me through educational publishing, marketing communications, and B2B publishing.
