I grew up outside Chicago and have lived all over the United States working as a graphic artist at different newspapers. I’ve been fortunate to have met incredible graphic artists and other professionals in Texas, Oregon, Florida and the New York City area. Over the course of my career, I’ve become a motivated, award-winning graphic artist with an expertise in simplifying complex information. I’ve developed, researched, designed and executed  projects from beginning to end. I take the initiative to get the job done by being ambitious and reaching out to sources. I’m a strong communicator and have worked in a fast-paced environment, producing daily work on deadline as well as working on long-term projects. I take great pride in my work, am detailed oriented, have developed a love for learning new things and I’m accustomed to multitasking.
