A Little About Me

I have been a freelance graphic designer since 2008 working with clients in Portland, Los Angeles, New York and many cities in between.

I am passionate about: small businesses, the health of our planet, slow food, gardening and spending time outdoors. I can go on and on about what I believe is the critical role that small business and non-profits play in communities. I strive to help organizations have a recognizable brand and watch them grow. I think social media and the internet are fascinating for brands. I try hard to keep up with trends while pushing myself as a visual designer.  

Fun fact: I once raised over $5000 for AIDS Project Los Angeles via sports and crowdfunding. 


I currently split time between Portland and Los Angeles. I have a great dog, her name is Lula.
