Cartoon Connoisseur & Design Buff

I am currently a Creative Strategist and Creative Talent Lead at TiER1 working across a variety of clients and projects. Traditionally trained as a print designer and self-taught interactive designer with experience in UI/UX. I have worked across multiple mediums, helping to solve problems and grow businesses using intelligent collaboration, creativity, and innovation. With experience in everything from design and photography direction to social media campaigns or responsive websites, I bring a diverse knowledge set to each project.

I attended the College of Design, Architecture, Art and Planning (DAAP) at the University of Cincinnati during which I completed 6 co-op quarters of design internships. I’ve had the opportunity to work at: Exhibitgroup/Giltspur, D3, Inc., Walmart.com, FS Creations, POSSIBLE (formerly known as Bridge Worldwide), Miami University, and TiER1.

I recently worked at Miami OH where I taught UX/UI fundamentals to Communication Design majors covering topics from UX basics, wireframing, site maps, persona development, color contrast accessibility, and more. Inspired by teaching, I turned my creative drawing prompts from class into a drawing prompts website.

I’m a current AIGA member, annual designer for the Southwest Ohio GiveCamp, regular at IXDA Cincinnati meet-ups, and was a panelist at the 2018 Cincinnati Design Week EMERGE workshop.
