I have a Master of Graphic Design degree from North Carolina State University and a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Applied Visual Arts from Oregon State University.
I consistently work in collaboration with a team of creative directors, writers, planners and producers to create, develop and implement story telling platforms that create engaging user experiences across multiple disciplines of design. I feel that collaboration reinforces the design intent as it transitions from an idea to a reality.
My research interests currently reside in examining the relationship between graphic design and outdoor environmental education, specifically looking at conservation and educating others on the importance of sustainable processes and practices.
When I’m not designing or thinking about design, I enjoy being outdoors. Snowboarding, boating, camping, hiking, wakeboarding and walking my Husky keep me occupied, motivated, and happy.
