Hello! I am a Seattle area graphic designer with a Bachelor's Degree and 5 year's experience. I design visually pleasing infographics, icons, illustrations, brochures, flyers, eBooks, print layout, post cards, mailers, and banners while focusing on your specific target audience. I am an organized and well-rounded individual that will give you quality designs that fit your business. Whatever your design need is I can work with you.

I am a strong believer that a design must be beautiful but also practical. Designs must serve their purpose whether it is appealing to the target audience and bringing in new customers or just communicating important information to the appropriate audience. I have worked in many settings where I collaborated with multiple people and problem solved to get the best design for the business.

While earning my bachelor's degree at Washington State University, I expanded my design horizons by studying Renaissance art history and graphic illustration at Florence University of the Arts in Florence, Italy. After graduating with my bachelor's degree, I pursued photography and graphic design positions. Through my experiences I have become interested in marketing.

For over 2 years I worked in a professional photography studio doing everything from photo shoots and weddings to designing marketing flyers.

I was incharge of the marketing department at a retail business for 2+ years. I was responsible for graphic design including signage, logos, branding, t-shirt designs, brochures, icons, and responsible for all other print media. I managed the Web site including banners, search engine optimization (SEO), HTML, and CSS. I was in charge of all marketing including press releases, promoting in-store events, building contact lists, weekly mass emails, coupons, specials, keeping a community feeling through social media (Facebook and Twitter), updating online directories, and line charts showing the similarities in marketing and sales.

Please enjoy my portfolio. I always love a new challenge so please contact me so we can begin a custom design for your business!
