I cut my design teeth at a topInteractiveAgencyinNYC — learning the ins and outs of agency life on top of earning my BFA in Graphic Design from the School of Visual Arts. I worked my way up from Intern to Creative Director at this agency by creating award-winning work and leading others to do the same. Creative quality, new business pitches, employee development, and the doubling of my department were all part of my tenure.
Beyond these soft skills of creative leadership, I'm also a strong, multi-talented interactive designer with front-end development knowledge. I love to wear both the designer and developer hats provide clients a seamless transition from design comp to final developed website.
I'm currently a full-timefreelancer and love working with my clients to help them develop their digital visual language!
I'm an avid indoor/outdoor gardener 🌿 and briefly worked a stint at a plant store helping to develop their online/e-commerce 🛒 experience. At a glance, I can tell you what type of plant you own and how you can keep it alive👩⚕️
I have a Blue Heeler named Fry 🐕 who's glued to my hip. You'll most likely see him tearing something up in the background of our zoom calls, or sleeping like an angel if I'm lucky!🤞
A few years ago, I moved from 🚕NYC ➡ TX🤠. I love the ability to be in touch with nature, own a home, and be closer to my husband's family. I'll always be a northerner at heart, and still work with clients from NYC and all over the US. At least twice a year I'm back in the NYC area visiting clients, family & friends!
