Just shiny and glowy.

Just shiny and glowy.

So, Who am I exactly?

I'm a Designer, Artist, and Chaser of Squirrels. I'm a born and raised East Coast girl, and even though I've lived in the Pacific Northwest for the last 11 years, I still maintain my Mid-Atlantic sensibilities. 

I know a lot about a lot of things, and my primary goal is to use what I know to help those who trust me to work with them. I believe that design is always a collaboration, and that it's part of my job to make the process as easy to understand as possible. I also have hands on experience with community building, social media marketing and customer service and have a keen ability to anticipate the needs of clients, regardless of personality.

I don't design for money, Instagram likes, or to feed my own ego. I design because design is an important piece of everything we do, and sometimes it gets overlooked not because it's not important, but because sometimes the language of design gets lost in its own ego.

Currently you can find me making cool things, trying my hand at writing, and running a successful freelance business for clients all over the world.
