I was a kid who was always asking to watercolor or play in the dirt. Art and design were things I have gravitated toward. Growing up, I loved to exercise creativity. No one found it surprising when I ended up a graphic designer. I have a passion for collaboration, sharing ideas, and making it happen (not just talking about it). I'm also a sucker for a good hike and a good taco. Back to back.
My design style is 'boldly simple' and I believe good design is clean and polished, but still shows evidence of a human touch.
I attained my Bachelor of Arts Degree at Wilkes University and majored in Integrative Media: an interdisciplinary major that combined print design, web design, photo + video, marketing, and fine art into one. While at Wilkes, I completed two internships, one with Montage Mountain Ski Resort and another with Wilkes Adventure Education. I also had the privilege of speaking at a National Conference in Portland, OR for Outdoor Recreation as it relates to higher education.
After college, I spent 22 days on the road, traveling the beautiful USA with a good friend and upon returning home accepted a full time position at Buckman's Ski and Snowboard Shops (seven shops in Eastern PA) where I am a Graphic Designer, Marketing Manager, Event Coordinator, and Social Media Coordinator. Working in the outdoor industry is something I truly enjoy and am passionate about.
I am currently building a side business through freelance work and custom design and I hope you will be a part of it.
