Direct yet conceptual. Provocative and engaging. Design & illustration for brands, publications, and people.


A bit about myself: I’m an Addy Award winning graphic designer, illustrator, and animator. Originally from the Columbus, Ohio region, I’m currently living near Cleveland, though I’d much rather be somewhere warm! I have been freelancing locally since the age of 15, relying on my strong work ethic and keen eye for clean, concise design. Now I have a formal education and ample work experience to support my ambition. 

I just graduated with a Bachelor’s of Fine Arts in Visual Communication Design (VCD) from Kent State University. The VCD program infuses not only graphic design, but advanced typography and layout, as well as detail-oriented illustration with a focus on effective advertising and editorial goals. In short, the VCD program taught me how to communicate effectively through many diverse visual mediums. 

Open to new clients and freelance projects, feel free to reach out to me with any questions you might have about myself or my work! We can get some coffee and discuss how I can help you expand your business, promote your event, or improve your website through the power of design, illustration, and animation.
