I used to think the lyrics to Elton John's "Tiny Dancer" was "Hold me closer, Tony Danza."
Recently, I (badly!) burned my elbow while making toast.
My six-word memoir would be: “Well I thought it was funny...”
My favorite quote: “Good times, noodle salad.” (As Good As It Gets)
A renegade idealist from a young age, I graduated from Portland State University’s Graphic Design program and have been a professional designer since 2005. I’ve built my design cred over the years on the backs of Northwest Natural Products, Fresh Cup Magazine, Rains | Birchard Marketing and countless small businesses and non-profit organizations.
My work runs the gamut of concept-driven magazine spreads to results-oriented website designs. I have a passion for geeking out on all things SEO and I love developing unique design solutions for small, creative, local businesses and entrepreneurs.
When I’m Not Designing
In my spare time, I cuddle with my dog Roxie, speculate on when Season 3 of Twin Peaks will be picked up (I’m looking at YOU, David Lynch!) and conspire about my next Vine video. I can also be found digging through others’ garbage cans in order to rescue recyclables, and can turn 12 shades of red when sunburned. I enjoy eating an embarrassing amount of ice cream, dressing up as Rainbow Brite and tallying up the days that I remain band-aid free.
I currently reside in lovely Northeast Portland, Oregon. Also, I am a delight.
