About Me

As a graphic designer with a decade of experience, I've had the privilege of working in various industries including athletics, wellness, travel, and higher education. In each industry, I've honed my skills in visual storytelling, branding, and user experience design. Working with sports teams and wellness brands, I've created designs that capture the energy and passion of these communities. For travel companies, I've crafted visual identities that evoke a sense of adventure and exploration. And in higher education, I've developed designs that convey the academic excellence and tradition of institutions. Through my diverse experience, I've learned how to tailor my designs to different audiences and industries, while maintaining my unique aesthetic and design principles.
