I believe there
is an undeniable connection between beauty & intelligence.

I love discovering the beauty in design whether it be in digital media, packaging design, editorial, fashion or art. Trends in tech and fashion are hard to keep up with but one core ingredient to most successful products is their attractiveness to the eye. The other core ingredient is function and usefulness. I hope to build my career on the exploration of beauty and functionality. I am willing to learn any program or language in order to serve these two guiding principles to the world. 

Background

Grew up in Jacksonville Fl and studied at the University of Florida in Gainesville. Learned to surf, ride horses, and swing dance while in college and moved to Seattle, Washington in 2007 to experience a thriving coffee culture and design community... and the mountains are beautiful! For years I was working as a barista and doing freelance design projects on the side. In 2014 I began to engage more in film and writing and have moved into more full time design work. I plan to continue growing in this way and have an open mind to my next steps whether it be in film making, writing stories, designing, brand or strategy.
