Hello! I am very pleased you stopped by! I was born and raised in the suburbs of Cleveland, Ohio. The quirky-arty-brainy-talkative oldest of three kids. I have a BFA in Graphic Design from Miami University. Out of college, I worked for an enjoyable decade at American Greetings where I was a product designer for gift bags and gift wrap. I headed west to Portland, Oregon for a couple of years. It was a time of a lot of personal growth and adventure. In 2016, I happily returned home to Northeast Ohio and am excited to put all my experiences and inspirations to good use. My design style is a blend of modern graphic with a dash of femininity and a penchant for injecting vintage or handmade elements. I love surface pattern design and am currently exploring new illustration challenges. My favorite things are great food, new adventures, anything in the arts, cats, and all things tiny.
