A little bit about me.

I've been making things since I was a little kid. I would drive my mom crazy because I would constantly ask her to help me with art projects and I would tell her time and time again, "Mom, I want to do something creative today!" It wasn't obvious at the time, but those little hints throughout my childhood were shaping just how design-oriented I’d become.

I was born and raised in Ottawa, Canada and along with loving all things "creative," I was drawn to playing team sports. Now, you might think that the sport that I would have naturally gotten into was hockey, but this girl had no interest in slapping pucks around on the ice. It was softball that had my heart. I had no idea that playing on a competitive team would eventually lead me to acquire exposure to collegiate-level coaches, but it did! I was scouted by a NJCAA coach from New York and was offered an athletic scholarship to a junior college in Long Island. After graduating, I earned an academic scholarship to the Savannah College of Art & Design (SCAD) where I completed my B.F.A. in Graphic Design (Magna Cum Laude: 3.8). 

I realized from a young age that every part of our world is designed in one way or another. That notion inspires me and drives my passion for creating in all facets of my life. I have more than 13 years of experience in service and graphic design, visual communication, marketing, brand management. I have led design teams, developed concepts and prototypes while collaborating with clients, stakeholders and consumers to establish strategies, solve problems and further evolve concepts.

I now live in Atlanta with my husband, two kids and two Yorkies. I'm always amazed at how there are little signs along the way that hint towards who we may become. I feel like my story so far has been a mixture of hard work, being at the right place at the right time and how I was apparently hardwired. I am constantly learning, eager to learn more and working towards shaping my next chapter.
