Originally from Tucson, 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 New York City I found myself in Atlanta, GA and began working as an Art Director for G2 and Grey Atlanta. While there I expanded my experience directing photo shoots and working with photographers and illustrators, 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 the global marketing team at Promethean, an education technology company, and in the fall 2011 I relocated to the Seattle office. During the four years I was there I have had the opportunity to work on multiple global campaigns and events as well as be involved in two company rebrands. Fall 2011 I relocated to the Promethean office in Seattle, Washington.
I currently work at Hacker Group, a direct marketing agency in downtown Seattle, using my design and marketing expertise as lead Art Director on AT&T U-verse.When I'm not at a computer designing, or sketching out my latest idea, I love photography, painting, mixed-media art, running around Green Lake and longboarding; but not all at the same time.
