“As a driven individual, with a passion for the arts and an avid appreciation for all things typography & print/web design related, I thrive in a bustling, collaborative, and creative environment.
As a designer, I approach each project with the mindset to follow through from the initial sketch to the final product stage.
As an artist, with a constant strive for perfection, I believe that the basis for a successful piece lies within the minute details.”
Written above is how I view the world as a professional but I’m much more than that. I’m an old soul, rock music listening, typography and all things cute loving, quirky bibliophile with an insatiable wanderlust.
The Nomadic Path
I’ve spent most of my life traveling and moving due to a military family upbringing: North Carolina, Nevada, Ohio, Virginia, etc. By the time I reached my senior year of college, I had attended 14 different schools including 3 colleges: Radford University, Emory & Henry College, and Shenandoah University.
At Radford University I pursued a B.F.A. in Graphic Design. During my junior year, I was offered an academic scholarship to Emory & Henry College. While at E&H, I discovered that, while I love graphic design as an art, I am more interested in the advertising and marketing aspect of the field. That realization led to my decision to change my major to Mass Communications with a minor in Graphic Design.
My family moved to Winchester, Va. in May 2013. Due to my stepfather coaching at Shenandoah University, I was able to transfer my scholarship and attend my final semester of my senior year tuition free. Upon transferring, I found that SU did not offer a Graphic Design program so that led me to change my minor to English.
