A detail-oriented designer with a passion for illustration

I am a recent graduate of Wichita State University with a BA in graphic design and a minor in communications. 

I started out in newspaper and print design, which has given me a springboard into other facets of design, including web. I’m always ready and willing to learn new things and apply my work ethic, attention to detail and unique creative perspective to any project. To see my print portfolio, click below.
