“Creativity is   an act of    defiance.” 

―Twyla Tharp

Designing, to me, is making sense out of The chaos, the dreams, the visions, the feelings. It's Nostalgia and communication, sparks of insight and intuition. It's curiosity about everything and everyone. 

 

 

I was born in Madison, WI and I still haven't come up with a convincing reason to leave. I avoided pursuing an artistic career for a long time because I feared I would lose my passion for creating. During that time I played synthesizer in bands, travelled, was a cook, was a farmer, collectively ran a grocery co-op, was the zine coordinator at a bookstore, and was always kind of pondering what I wanted to do next that would really feel right. 
I'm so happy I finally got over my skepticism!
Learning about design and creating work is one of the most exciting and fulfilling things I've ever taken on. I can't believe how many inspiring people I've met and how many rad projects I've had the fortune to work on. I've always been a little bit interested in everything, so I love that as a designer, I’m able to completely dive into endless diverse topics. 
I'm inspired by nature, the mysterious, the strange, animals, handmade, new places, old things, music, people, posters, patterns, colors...
really, anything can inspire.
Thank you for taking the time to get to know me and for checking out my work!
