As a designer I’m inspired by cultural research, business strategy and the visual beauty of graphic design. I cultivated my obsession with coffee and ramen in California before jumping to the East Coast to get my MFA in Graphic Design ('11) from the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore. I stayed on at MICA to teach graphic design while continuing my freelance practice. Ultimately I decided that the Midwest was best and now I’m an Art Director loving, living and working in Kansas City.
As a designer I’m always searching for the connection that creates a fresh visual and critical understanding of design. I work hard and play hard, but design hardly ever feels like work.
