Fargo, ND is my hometown and I am proud of it! A place known for the creepy self-titled movie and television series, an exaggerated accent and some of the coldest winters, but it will always be a place I love to call home. Looking to grow, I moved to the state of cheeseheads to attend the University of Wisconsin-Stout. Little did I know, at the time, UW-Stout's professors and design community would cause some life-defining choices. December of 2015, I proudly graduated from the School of Art & Design leaving with a BFA in Graphic Design & Interactive Media with a minor + fluency in Español.
As a designer, I am a hands on worker, always writing, sketching and enjoying the experience of the ins / outs / ups / downs of every project. I enjoy various leadership roles as well as having my own unique projects. I am also a proud volunteer at AIGA Minnesota, the nationwide community for all things design.
A larger influencer of mine is culture, having been to Europe twice (Holland & Belgium, Olso to Istanbul), Canada, Central America, Africa, Asia and various trips across the USA. I am passionate about the differences between people and sharing global experiences. These experiences encourage me to hate the ordinary.
