Born and raised just outside of Duluth, MN, I was interested in drawing from an early age. After deciding not to become a professional artist, I channeled my love of creativity and computers into becoming a graphic designer.
After getting my Associate’s Degree in Visual Communications, I started learning more about web development on my free time. I started doing freelance front-end and WordPress development in addition to my job as a desktop publisher at OfficeMax. My skills as a web developer and graphic designer came together when I started working at LEVEL Brand. There, my job duties utilized both skill sets and I continue to grow my abilities in both areas.
In addition to graphic design and web development, I have numerous hobbies. These include fine art painting in both watercolor and acrylic, 3D modeling in Blender, motion graphics and special effects, hobby electronics including Arduino, and many more.
