About me

My friends call me eccentric, and my co-workers call me creative. Graphic design is a job, field of study and passion for me. I have spent my whole life designing- even before I knew that I was a designer. 

My favorite thing about being a designer in Omaha, NE is the supportive community of creatives that I get to work with. Even though I am the sole designer at my current position I can meet incredible people through my volunteer work with AIGA. Design is always changing and allows me to network with people from all fields of creative expression.
