A little bit about me...

Born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri, I have been continuously building on a decade of creative design and user experience from my previous home in Huntsville, Alabama since 2007. Recently, I have moved to Denver, Colorado where I'm challenged with exploring new outlets to sharpen my skills and enhance my personal creativity, as well as my mountain hiking and biking skills!

These days, my creative inspiration is greatly influenced by my life adventures. I enjoy flying excursions with my pilot husband (whom recently built an airplane) and drawing inspiration from the childhood imagination of my little girl. My career journey has led me from Designer, to Art Director, and to eventually starting my own design business in 2009. I have experience providing clients with a broad range of visual communication services to include brand identity and logo creation, web design, print design, and more. In my current job-role, I provide online elearning course development in the fast-growing field of instructional design for a global technology company.

If it is visual communication, and effective training you desire, I can tell the story!
