Originally from southwestern Virginia, I’ve spent the last five years working on the creative team at McGarrah Jessee in Austin, Texas. Prior to that I lived in Denver where I was a Senior Designer at White Wave Foods and an Art Director at Cultivator.
I began my career, driven by a love for craft and typography, at California College of the Arts in San Francisco with an MFA in Printmaking. Wanting to apply that level of craft and conceptual rigor to something more in line with my interests, I sought a second graduate program in Design and Art Direction from the Portfolio Center in Atlanta. It was there that I turned my printmaking skills into a tool for storytelling. Since then I’ve had the pleasure of crafting stories and creative strategy for a wide range of clients including YETI, Costa, 4ocean, Howler Brothers, Chacos Footwear, Telluride Tourism, Estes Park Tourism, Horizon Organics, International Delight, RockResorts, DIAGEO (Guinness and Red Stripe Breweries), New Belgium Brewery, United Airlines and more, earning me mentions in Communication Arts, Graphis, Adweek, and Fast Company.
