My dream of being a designer began back in high school; it was one of those “things”, where you just know in your soul that it is right. I graduated from Southeast Technical Institute in Sioux Falls, SD with my associate’s degree in Graphic Communications and set out on my trek to find my ideal ad agency position. The real world and design job market of South Dakota set in shortly after.
After realizing the perfect job wouldn’t happen overnight I decided to take my career into my own hands. I started with small projects at my place of employment, email memos and corporate contest marketing. I continued my education and received my bachelor’s degree in Business Management from the University of Sioux Falls. I volunteered my skills to create event media for a local charity group. The hard work and dedication began to pay off with steady freelance work and finally a full time design position.
The foundation I developed through my first degree has only been improved upon. With over 10 years experience as a graphic designer I have developed a well-rounded skill set, with experience in branding, corporate identity, advertisements, event media, booklet layout, clothing design and packaging development. In addition to my experience and education, I have true passion for design and the creative process.
