In 2019, I received a Bachelor of Arts in Visual Communication Design and a minor in Photo Illustration from Kent State University. I've studied typography, packaging, layout design, editorial illustration, and character design. I enjoy solving problems within my designs by putting myself in the client/audiences' shoes. In my illustrations, I use organic shapes and motion to create interest. I have an extensive knowledge of photography whether it's inside our outside of a studio. Other than design work, I also enjoy trying new things, playing/singing music, and taking care of my Goldendoodle.
Currently, I hold a position as a graphic designer at P. Graham Dunn and I am a member of the marketing team. I handle several different projects at one time from creating advertisements for various magazines to shooting product photography. Previous experience includes working for different magazines like AkronLife, Luna Negra, and The Burr Magazine. With these magazines I had the opportunity to work as a designer, illustrator, or photographer. Each experience has given me the opportunity to work under an art director and on a design team.
I have had many amazing opportunities to be published in several magazines in recent years including: AkronLife, The Burr Magazine, and Luna Negra. You can click the button below to see some of my published work.
