I can often be found at one of the coffee shops downtown.
I also hang out with friends on Saturday morning at the Farmer's Market, or take a quiet jog by the water. I am inspired by my father, who is a landscape designer, and my aunts and uncles, which also are in creative fields.
I embrace having fun, being spontaneous, and taking time to talk to everyone that cross my path.
I am a local from the Knoxville area, and I'm passionate about the people and the graphic design here. As a child, I spent most of my time playing sports, getting dirty outside, and earning "talkative" on my progress reports from my teachers. Today, I have transferred
this energy into serving and collaborating with other graphic designers. Design is a lifestyle and sport to me. I believe if someone wants to be good, they must be enthusiastic, resourceful, playful, focused, unafraid of
failure, and most of all be a team player.
I remember every Saturday outside playing. Playing consumed my childhood.
No computers. No mobile phones. Cable television was not on my radar.
could interrupt me. No one could catch me. My shoes provided me the
ability to explore.Laced-up tight, not one eyelet was left out. What good are shoes
with no shoelaces?

My work is inspired by patterns in nature and the use of negative space. I enjoy organizing large amounts of information and creating new ways to increase it's effectiveness.
After college, I hope to continue building my career in digital design, while nurturing my interests in branding.
