I think we can all agree that third-person bios are kind of awkward.
I'm originally from Wichita, Kansas and I get excited about lots of things: learning, letters, making things with my hands, helping good people figure out how to grow their ideas, and fancy cheese.
Since graduating from Columbia College Chicago, I've worked with a variety of studios and firms on a range of projects. I've enjoyed the opportunity to learn from both talented creatives and passionate clients; these collaborations have been genuinely fun and mutually beneficial.
I love the work I get to do every day, and I'm certain that enthusiasm pushes me to stronger solutions. Design is most rewarding to me when it's equal parts warm, approachable, and smart.

In the city of Chicago, I've found myself in the company of quite a few talented and creative people who happen to be really excellent humans.
I've worked alongside lovely crews at Grip, Letterform, and Ghost Lab. If you're looking for videographers, photographers (all sorts), copywriters, strategists, event planners, installation artists, interior designers, web designers, graphic designers, floral designers, illustrators, or just best friends, I'd love to put you in touch with some of these delightful folks.
