I graduated from Bradley University with a B.S. in graphic design and a minor in marketing. I have over twelve years working professionally as a graphic designer, half of those spent in boutique agencies in the Chicago area, and the other half as a freelancer. Recently I've found myself gravitating towards work with nonprofits, small business startups, and social / environmental justice organizations. I believe artists and designers have the capability to imagine and shape the direction of society, and strive to choose work that is both challenging and meaningful.
Aside from design I am an active artist, musician, and community organizer. I co-founded and help run Third Space Art Collective, an organization that strives to inspire active participation in the shaping of the creative culture.
