About

 

Raised as a designer in a design family I created my own logo and began working on projects with my parents at the age of five. Since then, I have studied Graphic Design in College, freelanced while pursuing multiple passions, and for the past ten years have returned to my roots as a full time Graphic Artist. My tools have changed over the years from colored pencils to computers but my design sensibility has remained. I pride myself in being a soup to nuts style designer - I can code websites, design interactive spaces, create identity solutions, illustrate logos, design information graphics... you name it.

Many of my clients are in the outdoor or landscape field.  This is because I have also had the pleasure of working in Forest Management and Outdoor Education. One of my favorite outdoor jobs was leading students for college credit on 75 day backpacking, kayaking, and glacial mountaineering courses in Alaska through the National Outdoor Leadership School. After managing high risk situations, and teaching the ins and outs of leadership, I moved to NYC to design full-time. Working in NYC was fabulous and allowed me to gather a wonderful set of clients, many of whom are rooted in my interest in landscapes and the outdoors.  I eventually brought these clients with me when I moved north to the beautiful setting of Midcoast Maine.
