I studied Fine Art at The School of Visual Arts and design at Full Sail University, but ended up as a design educator after being offered a teaching position right out of college. My journey as an educator revealed a passion for supporting students in both their professional and personal growth.
As a Course Director by day and a entrepreneur by night, I gained my design experience working on social advocacy, ministry, non-profit, food & beverage, legal, insurance, and also did a lot of local pro bono work to support local non-profits. Gaining exposure to enterprise and agency-level work allowed me to become self-taught in the areas of brand communication design, web development, desktop application development, user experience design, and print design.
I care deeply about craftsmanship, quality, collaboration, and I’m an advocate for design and technology education. I’m an advocate for improving user experiences where they fall short, maintaining brand standards, and adamant about “good design” existing everywhere – from digital product design, dining experiences, automobiles, homes, and public spaces.
