Designer & Educator

In 2007, I decided to follow my dreams of self-management. Little did I know the joys and tribulations this decision would bring…but I wouldn't trade the experience for the world. I've been blessed with a steady stream of amazing local partners, including Uptown Art Fair, Lundstrum Center for the Performing Arts, and The Arc Greater Twin Cities. I've enjoyed long-term relationships with many clients, strengthening their graphic identities, streamlining communications strategies, and seeking ways to more effectively meet the needs of their audiences.

But what really makes my practice rewarding is that I can share what I do with my students
