I'm a California native currently living in Rhode Island and missing palm trees, but loving the lack of traffic. I work at Schoolyard, and completed my BFA degree in graphic design at Rhode Island School of Design.
When I'm not designing, I enjoy listening to public radio, seeing live music, combining coffee drinking and newspaper reading, watching classic films, jogging, eating at great restaurants, traveling, and digging for the right LP at record shops.
Graphic Designer with formal training and fine arts degree, focused on designing for web with a comprehensive skillset including front-end development and experience with Drupal.
