…and I like to draw. No, really 🙂
What started as a love of drawing in childhood, turned into an obsession with creating logos in high school, and lead me to earning a BFA in Illustration from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, PA.
My first job during & immediately after college (way back in 2003!) was illustrating & designing posters for Electric Factory Concerts (If you’re a music fan & you’d like to take a trip down memory lane, you can see all my old posters on Gigposters.com). It was a incredibly fun, came with free concert tickets and most importantly, introduced me into the world of managing my workload, keeping track of expenses, and all the fun stuff that comes with owning your own business. In the more than 10 years since, I’ve worked in a number of in-house & freelance design jobs, including a seven year stint as a product & packaging designer for major national retailers. In the beginning of 2011, I learned how to use WordPress and the first inception of this website was born.
My goal as a designer is to make businesses more beautiful, by creating eye-catching logos, illustrations, promotional materials & WordPress websites. I especially love working with small businesses & non-profits and am quick to share marketing & promotional ideas I come across in my own quest to improve my business.
