About Me

I have been involved in design and production in the mid-Michigan area for over ten years. My design expertise and production skills can be seen in the hundreds of thousands of products across Michigan, and beyond, that I had a hand in creating. Not only do I have experience and proficiency in many of the leading graphic design programs, I have knowledge in prepping files for print in various formats, as well as digital.

Creating new ideas is something that I have always done since I was a child. Whether it is a quick one-liner joke, or a clever t-shirt idea, I am always thinking up something new. One of my best traits is that I am never content with what I already know. I am constantly learning new techniques and on the lookout for new trends/ideas to experiment with.

Not only do I have all of the skills and experience that I mentioned above, I am also college educated. I have both an associate in applied arts degree in graphic design from Lansing Community College, and a bachelor in professional communication from Siena Heights University.
