I am an interdisciplinary designer experienced in print, web, and branding. I believe strongly in design's power to motivate, educate, and inspire. I have a strong advertising background and strive to merge beautiful design with realistic business objectives, and inform my design choices with information ranging from consumer studies to mass communication principles to psychology. I think of myself as equal parts artist and technician. I also have an entrepreneurial streak and enjoy pursuing small projects on Kickstarter.
