I am a San Francisco-based graphic designer who grew up on a small farm in Minnesota where nature and wide open spaces fueled my reflective and creative spirit. As a graphic designer, I believe that good design requires careful listening and diligent research just as much as it requires creativity. My greatest strength lies in my passion for diving deep into the subject matter of each project. Eight years of marketing communications experience adds to my ability to focus on the messaging just as much as the design. When I’m not creating, I love to swim with my daughter, cook spicy food for friends and family, and hike. I am passionate about helping the environment and would especially love to tackle a design challenge around sustainable living.
