I've loved the creation process ever since I was a youngster who picked up a crayon & doodled a masterpiece all over my parents' basement wall (you're welcome!). I had the luxury of making a career of it in 2007 when I graduated from Michigan State University (GO GREEN!) with BAs in advertising & studio art. My husband and I recently packed up our little family and moved from Maryland, where I was working as a senior graphic designer, back to the beautiful state of Michigan. I now plan to explore mommyhood, freelancing while recreating my site, and figuring out what it means to be a Michigander again.

I'd like to say I have a preference for print or web, but I can't; I love designing for both. I've designed everything from magazines, ads, & posters to large banners & booths. As for the web, I've created business, non-profit, event, & personal sites, as well as UI design for apps. Since college I've won awards for my photography, email designs, and have been featured on several gallery/award sites such as HOW Interactive Design - Site of the Day, OnePageLove, CSS Mania, The Design Inspiration, Design Modo, & Vandelay Design (among others...balllerrr). ;)
