It all started with arts & crafts projects when I was little, but I recently found some of my old report cards and noticed the comments from my art teachers in high school, which gave me insight on how I wound up in the field of graphic design. I graduated from Concordia College in Moorhead with a B.A. in Communications with an emphasis in Advertising and a Minor in Art. I would spend hours working on a project in the studio to get it just right and loved every minute of it. I've been in business for myself for over 15 years now and I wouldn't have it any other way!
I’ve worked in several different areas of design. I started out learning the print process and all things ink and paper, then transitioned to publishing for a few years before I made the move to an ad agency in the warehouse district of Minneapolis. I worked there for 8 years, which gave me the background and knowledge I needed to go off on my own. I bring my enthusiasm for design into every aspect of my business, as well as the client work I do for packaging-related manufacturing firms, small businesses and non-profits in the area.
My work has been published in Packaging World, Healthcare Packaging, Law & Politics, SuperLawyers, and MSP magazines and I am a Board Member of the Institute of Packaging Professionals, Minnesota Chapter.
When I’m not working, I love spending time outdoors, whether it’s taking a camping trip up north, kayaking on nearby lakes, or just taking a walk in the neighborhood. I also love a good renovation project. You can usually find me working on re-purposing furniture (among other things) with chalk paint.
