I was born and raised in Dayton, Ohio. I have been exploring all aspects of what it means to be creative. From graphic design, illustrating, photography, and video, to offset press, silkscreening, and web development, I am active in my pursuit of what it means to be an effective communicator.
I am currently residing in Eugene, Oregon, working as a marketing specialist and graphic designer for The Career Center at The University of Oregon. My role at the UO is to act as administrative marketing support through creating brand identity/awareness, developing marketing campaigns for events and program areas, and educating students through the different printed and digital pieces that are created. I also serve on two committees within the division: Multicultural Alliance and The Student Life Marketing Committee. In addition, I act as liaison between foster care students and the Career Center, creating awareness in what services and financial assistances are available to this underrepresented group.
Outside of my full-time job at the university, I work as a part-time pre-pressman and in-house graphic designer at a local printshop called Bourland Printing. I am responsible with juggling anywhere from four to five clients at anytime, working on a variety of graphic needs and setting up print-ready files to our offset and digital print teams.
A few of my passions, are learning to play the ukulele and bass, hanging out with friends and loved ones, and investing my time and talents in the ministry opportunities I am associated with.
