ABOUT

A Piece of Cake

As a designer, artist and all-around creative thinker, I am here to help you realize your vision whether it be through identity, print, web, event design, photography, writing or social marketing. I take your ideas from concept to product.

I am an artist originally from sunny Los Angeles, currently residing in the lush Appalachian mountains of western North Carolina. At the University of California, Santa Barbara I first explored printmaking, book arts, cultural theory and web design, earning my B.A. in Studio Art and Global Studies.

Before departing for Appalachia, I was on the creative team for Malibu Design Group, a swimwear company located near downtown Los Angeles. A creative director for the marketing department, I oversaw the brand websites, advertising campaigns, catalog designs, and marketing strategies. Working closely with the design and art departments, I was also involved in the creative product design process researching trends and creating textile designs. My designs have been seen at Zumiez, Wet Seal, Limited Too, Kohls, Mervyn’s, Macy’s, JC Penney, Nordstroms, Tilly’s, Sears and swim boutiques around the world.

Currently, I am a media and design consultant for wide variety of clients including the John C. Campbell Folk School in Brasstown, NC. Poster design and vintage styles are focus in my graphic work. My posters unite a love for graphic design, vintage poster art, and Art Deco and Art Nouveau styles.

When I am not designing or making art, I frequent 24-hr diners, play Scrabble®, enjoy natural history museums, pick on my banjo, take pin-up photography and take random road trips.
