A Good Laugh is a Mighty Good Thing

I'm a graphic and web designer living in Chicago with experience branding restaurants, retail, and non profits. Some of my hobbies include cooking (eating), keeping up with the arts (rewatching old episodes of Gilmore Girls), and enjoying the outdoors (eating on patios). With my creative agility and problem solving skills, I create logos, signage, wayfinding, and other branded design elements that are both strategic and purposeful. I passionately put all of my energy into every project that I come across to ensure that every client is satisfied. Most importantly, I think work should be fun and no day is complete without a good laugh!

Currently, I am a full time designer at Ideation Studio, a multi-disciplinary design firm that focuses on branded retail and restaurant environments. To see more about the company check out Ideation Studio's website!
