I'm a Chicago-based graphic designer from Ohio. I graduated from Bowling Green State University in May 2009 with a BFA in Graphic Design, then spent the following Fall at Thirst as an intern under the mentorship of Rick Valicenti. I've continued to live and work in Chicago since then, specializing in branding, print, and interactive design. I'm currently a Senior Designer at 50,000feet.
