I'm a graphic designer and illustrator based in Greensboro, North Carolina. I graduated from James Madison University in 2012 with a major in Media Arts and Design and a minor in Fine Art.
If I'm not designing or doodling, I'm likely hanging out with my giant puppy Bert, checking out a new-to-me restaurant, thrift shopping, rearranging my living room, or dreaming about hand setting type in the letterpress studio I hope to one day own.
