I was born and raised in Madison, Wisconsin. I am one of six siblings. I watched my Mom provide for us by working a full-time job while attending the University of Wisconsin. She taught us the importance of education and that any situation you may find yourself in is not an excuse to walk away from your goals, her greatest lesson of all.
Having inherited her work ethic at a young age, I applied it to my love for the arts. I was able to attend and
graduate from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design with a B.F.A. in Graphic Design. I would not have been able to accomplish this goal without the support of my family and friends. To this day, they continue to be my
support and foundation for my career endeavors. I am proud to say that because of our Mom’s encouragement, all of my siblings have, or are in progress, of attainting college degrees.
After graduating, I made my way around the Midwest pursuing different career opportunities. In 2010, I returned to Minnesota to reconnect with the creative atmosphere and designers I grew and learned from. The passion I have for my craft outweighs any compensation; I will continue to create regardless and have developed many friendships with people who share these same ideals.
One of my greatest strengths is the ability to always find something positive, even in the toughest situations. I live by the quote “struggle builds character.” I’ve experienced hardships and had to sacrifice throughout my career, but I’ve always worked hard to achieve my goals and the things I want and I have a deeper appreciation for those who have done the same. I thank all the individuals who have given me the opportunity to share my work and experiences.
