I’m a multi-passionate creative who loves to learn, design, make a difference and inspire others to do the same.
Self-teaching myself graphic design and web development at a young age, I found myself falling in love with visual design and solving puzzles with code. I nurtured this love by formally studying these topics in my school years. It’s rare to find me not absorbing something new each day and usually with a coffee at hand.
I have academic degrees in web design and graphic communications as well as a masters degree from the University of Michigan School of Information in Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) and with great focus in entrepreneurship. However, I credit much of my learning and growth from life-changing mentorship throughout my educational journey. I enjoy paying it forward and giving back as much as I can through teaching and various volunteer work.
I’m a UX Engineer at a college by day. Outside of this, I run my own business, Creative Seed. In over a decade of experience, I've helped hundreds of clients with their websites, graphic design and multimedia work. I've also taught hundreds of students in these subject areas through teaching at colleges, mentoring, and giving public presentations. My love for helping others succeed is further reached in my second business, BrandRoots, which provides resources to help others grow their knowledge, confidence and output in creative work.
I'm a versatile creative who has a rare and unique ability to do a variety of skills. By combining my ability to understand design, coding, technology, marketing and while having a business-mindset, I can see the bigger picture of a project and add valuable perspectives within teams. I enjoy doing work where the bar is raised high, and I perform nothing short of this.
I find great joy in using creativity to solve problems, express messaging, and make a positive impact. Interested in working together? Let's connect.
