Design has always been a passion of mine.
Born and raised in a small town in New Hampshire, I grew up wanting to do many things. I finally narrowed it down for one of my greatest passions, Graphic Design. After being mesmerized by the packaging in stores as a teen, I soon discovered that I could be the person behind this magical technique. While print design and branding are my passion, it hasn't stopped me from exploring all mediums such as web, sculpture, photography and painting.
I have graduated from Endicott College with my BFA in Visual Communications. I hope to continue taking classes to further expand my knowledge of the design field.
I was into drawing as a kid, asking for 'How To' books for birthdays and holidays; often based around drawing animals. While I always loved art, I knew I was meant to be a Graphic Designer when I realized I could be the person behind the signs, symbols, eye catching packaging and advertisements people were so drawn too. Four years of schooling and a years worth of internships have rounded me into the designer I am today; creative, enthusiastic, passionate and ever learning.
From designing Christmas list presentations as a kid, to co-creating an Art In Odd Places project on my college campus, I have always been creative. The title of my portfolio 'The Hours Before I Sleep' elude to the multiple hours I spend at night, coming up with creative solutions and new ideas as I try to drift off.
When I have a passion for something, I put 110% into that passion. My passion for Lord of The Rings brought me to the top of Mount Doom...despite blisters the size of quarters on my heels, being the only girl in a crew of athletic boys and a 2 hour vertical climb (and yes Mount Doom is halfway across the world in New Zealand).
If I want to understand something I research it. If i'm not being taught it, I seek out a way to learn it. If I don't know the answer, I ask and solve. I love learning from those more experienced than me and applying what I learn to my current and future work. I absorb information like a sponge and am a quick learner.
