Graphic design is all about problem solving. I love to attack a challenge in a creative and exciting way. If I get to try a new technique or learn a new program in the process of designing then that's even better! Recently I started working with motion graphics and look for any opportunity to develop my skills. I love working in Photoshop doing image manipulation and seeing what kind of happy accidents I can create.
I also love to work with my hands and make a mess. If an item in a store looks cool but I think to myself "I bet I could make that" I will definitely give it a try! Usually the finished piece looks nothing like what I thought it would when I started but that's part of the fun. I also love shooting photography in both digital and film. I've had my Holga camera since I was 15 and it absolutely reflects my personality from the chipping paint pattern I covered it with to the weathered strap I made for it out of duct tape.
Below is a sample of my work. These projects are a mix of professional and personal work. These pieces do a great job of summing me up and giving you a little taste of who I am as a designer. If you want to see more check out my full portfolio
I am currently working at BerlinRosen, a PR firm focused on advocacy and political work, in their Digital agency. In my role as Deputy Digital Art Director, I collaborate with nearly all of the firm's practice areas to create a range of digital pieces. I am able to get involved with all facets of a project from strategy to design to execution. I enjoy the opportunity to contribute to causes I am personally invested in through visual communication and social strategy. I am passionate about visual storytelling and brand building through the use of digital media in new and exciting ways.
