A midwesterner at heart, I grew up in Ohio before studying art and design at the University of Michigan. After college, I moved to Chicago for a little under two years. There I started my career as a graphic designer before relocating again to Grand Rapids, Michigan to be with my then-boyfriend-now husband. After four and half memorable years in the mitten state, and two jobs that lead me to the world of user experience and digital product design, I now live in Durham, NC.
My day-to-day work in digital product design is fueled by my other creative pursuits. This site is where I combine my practice as designer for the digital space with design for the physical world—through writing, interior design, invitation and stationary design, and by documenting my travels.
