A bit about me…

I’m a Designer/Art Director working in Chicago, Ill.

Outside of freelancing, I am involved with the AIGA Chicago Mentorship Program. I’ve also been pushing to learn as much as I can soak up in front-end web development.

With everything I do, I like to carry a solid design ethos throughout. Let’s talk about it.

Résumé here.
