I’m a problem solver. I’m a builder. Creating experiences and systems is exciting to me.

Born and raised in Kansas City, I’m a city girl at heart. I discovered graphic design 6 years ago and never looked back, teaching myself to code along the way. The last few years have taught me a lot, and I’m looking forward to what the next few bring.

I also enjoy hiking, biking, going to Sporting Kansas City games, watching Game of Thrones (who doesn’t?), and playing with my cats Etta James and Charlie Parker.
