Creative Designer

Maker,
Storyteller,
& Creative Problem Solver


I graduated from Kutztown University of Pennsylvania in the spring of 2018. There, I received my Bachelor of Fine Arts in Communication Design with concentrations in Advertising and Interactive Design. From 9 to 5, Monday through Friday, you can find me at Enter.Net where I work as a web designer responsible for ensuring all of our client's visions become a reality. I formerly worked part-time as a graphic designer for the Rohrbach Library in Kutztown, PA. While there, I managed projects including brand development, wayfinding, and advertising. Additionally, I have also served as an art direction intern for The Anderson Group based out of Reading, PA. In that role, I was tasked with creating logos, gifs, UI mockups, email campaigns, and social media posts.

Many of us have degrees, specialties, jobs, and experience. We love comparing and contrasting tangible qualities because it is easy. But has anyone ever actually entered this field because they thought it would be easy? If we want the real story, if we want the best, we dig a little deeper. We look at not only what a person is, but who a person is. A dedicated designer might be what I am, but is not who I am.

So what makes me, well, me? As a creative, my belief is that concept comes first. A solid idea is the foundation of any successful project. You can add as much flash and polish atop of it as you like, but if that base is not there, your project will not stand. It is the core of any worthwile endeavor.

I have always had an interest in finding creative solutions to problems. I am drawn to advertising and design that exists outside the traditional realm of print, radio, and television. I find myself fascinated by guerrilla and out-of-home advertising, experiential design, installations, and the multitude of ways we can incorporate emerging technologies into our work. At the end of the day, I am a creative with a passion for design, copywriting, tech, and finding fresh, unique perspectives.

I am currently exploring creative positions in New York City, Philadelphia, the Lehigh Valley, and surrounding areas.
