I'm lucky to love what I do.

(and the people i get to do it with.)
introduction

Some say I'm...

Energetic, Enthusiastic, Passionate, Type-A (I call it “organized”), Assertive, a Music-Lover (with a Spotify addiction), a DMB Fanatic, a Dog Lover, a Foodie

Which results in...

An animated team-player with creative problem solving skills. A strategic, big-picture thinker ready to tackle the next project. A strong sense of pride in and passion for my work. An exceptionally organized and detail-oriented designer. A go-to resource for the latest in indie rock. A collector of live DMB shows that date back to 1990. A devoted mom of a chocolate lab named Juno. An advocate for ethical eating and a regular supporter of local restaurants.

about me

A Multi-Disciplined Designer

Throughout my career I’ve worked in a variety of design environments that range from large to small and corporate to creative: global corporations, advertising agencies, small businesses, and individual clients.

My work has been just as diverse — reaching numerous mediums including web, interactive, video and print. Along the way I’ve had the privilege to work with many notable brands such as Del Monte Foods, GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), Highmark (Blue Cross Blue Shield), Papa John’s Pizza, PPG, Swedish Match, Subway and Verizon among others.

Outside the office...

I spend most of my time engaged in the creative process — collaborating with others and bringing ideas to life in a visually interesting way. When I’m not working you can usually find me behind my camera honing my photography skills (more often taking the easy route on Instagram!) or volunteering with my pup Juno, as a therapy dog team at Passavant Hospital and Pittsburgh International Airport.
