I am a Chicago-based multimedia creative specializing in graphic design, illustration, and motion graphics. I’ve worked with local and small businesses to develop their brand identity, increase social media presence, and update and enhance existing marketing materials and print collateral.
I am a five-tool designer who can do it all, but my work is deeply rooted in my greatest strength: Illustration. I see vector images as freeing, not restricted to any boundaries—which is why I am obsessed with creating them. Adobe Illustrator is my best friend. And just like a vector image is boundless, I believe design is as well. I approach every project as an opportunity with endless creative possibilities, and I love to help clients realize their vision across multiple mediums.
My multimedia approach is also fueled by my endless desire to learn more about design. I am constantly exploring new programs and adding to my design repertoire, and love taking on projects where I can learn something new. I hope my next career move will allow me to use all my experience to take on a bigger challenge.
Outside of work for clients my creative projects are very much influenced by my passions, sports and pop culture. If it has been shown on a TV or the big screen, I have likely seen it. However, I do find time to escape the screen overlords through occasional trips to a local brewery and driving range.
I am always open to collaborate, start a new project, or chat. If you’d like to chat about working together, drop me a line at email@example.com.
