About

Just a bit more about me and whatnot.

I grew up in a small farm town in Iowa before graduating from Iowa State University with a Fine Art Degree with an emphasis in digital media. I moved to the greater Seattle area right after graduation and I haven’t looked back since! I have been working for EducationDynamics for the last 10 years, with a little freelance on the side to keep things spicy.

I have been in the design game for 15 years, web design/development, graphics, motion, project management and so much more!

Project Management

Having dozens of projects going at one time, means knowing who is working on what (and who would be the best fit for that project), when they need to be done, and where each project is on its timeline, all at once. It lets me stretch super hero level multi-tasking muscles. Don’t worry, I’ll leave my cape at home.

Creative Direction

It is easy to miss something when you are staring a project for hours/days/weeks at a time.  Sometimes you are so focused on one part, you miss something else, that’s why having a second pair of eyes to review is vital.  I am a firm believer that all criticism must be constructive in order to help a designer create their best work. 

Design

I still like to get my hands dirty and keep my skills sharp.  Web design/development, branding, emails, graphics, print, UX design, presentations and much more, if I haven’t done it yet, I view it as an opportunity to learn and grow.  I’ve worked on luxury real estate, spa, online education, construction, tech, athletics and so much more.
