About me

I have been working in the graphic design field since May 2014.  I graduated with a BFA in Graphic Design from the University of Minnesota's College of Design in May 2016.  

Interested in art from a very young age, I discovered that a career in graphic design would satisfy my need to use my artistic and creative skills.  Growing up in a rural area and landscape north of the Twin Cities, my design aesthetic is very rustic and earthy.  I gravitate toward designs that portray a sense of experience or history.  Working with clients for a couple years, I have found that people desire their product to portray a story as well.  Many respond well to designs that involve a variety of textures and almost convey a visual story in contrast to more simplistic, white space designs.  In a day where many are technology driven and live a fast-paced lifestyle, people desire the simplistic old, vintage days.  This is very much apparent in today's design aesthetic and direction.  

I hope to continue to assist clients in sharing and portraying a visual storyline for what ever they wish to promote or convey, whether it is a band, company, or product.
