Originally from Arizona, I moved to the East Coast after graduating from Northern Arizona University with a BFA in Visual Communication and Graphic Design. Following a brief stint in NYC I found myself in Atlanta, GA working as an Art Director at G2 and Grey Atlanta. While there I expanded my experience directing photo shoots, working with photographers and illustrators, and collaborating with marketing planners and account team members. I also had the privilege of working with clients such as AT&T, BP, Georgia Aquarium, Miller Icehouse and Georgia Power.
In 2008 I joined Promethean, an education technology company, as lead designer on the global marketing team. During the four years I was there I had the opportunity to work on multiple global campaigns and events, as well as a company rebrand.
Currently I work at HackerAgency, a global direct marketing agency headquartered in downtown Seattle. As lead Art Director on AT&T U-verse and AT&T GigaPower, I focus on blending strategy with design to provide flexible, nimble and attention grabbing creative that drives performance.
Designing purpose driven creative is my passion, but I also love photography, painting, mixed-media art, running and longboarding.
