I’ve been an artist since I was a little tike.

At eight, I sketched up floor plans for my dream home, complete with descriptions of all its fanciful features like a volcano in the living room. But, after a year at Drury University in Springfield, Missouri, I eventually found my true love in two dimensions: graphic design. Specializing in visual communication, I received a B.A. in Design Arts. I’ve spent the last eight years up to my ankles in graphic design and branding.

They say I had the early signs of a wordsmith.

I spoke early, asked questions incessantly, and wrote on everything that magic marker could mark. I did all the typical wordy activities like spelling bees, speech tournaments, and essay competitions. By the time I got to college I had one goal: communicate with anyone, anywhere, at any level. I found the training I craved in the public relations department, and left Arizona State University with a B.A. in Journalism and Mass Communication. For ten years now, I’ve been writing, project managing, and publicly relating on a professional level.
