Graphic designer with 7 years experience. Passion for print,
with a love for all things digital.
Type nerd, perfectionist, deep thinker, make-it-up-as-i-go-er.  

I believe in asking complex questions, and giving clear answers. That there is no project too challenging, or too simple. That a sense of humor is necessary to design, and that collaboration is what drives the best solutions.

On a completely different note. I'm from Mystic, CT, and being from Mystic I have to be near the ocean. No, I don't have a boat. (I hope we can still be friends). I would rather watch a movie than binge watch a TV show. Also, I'm a dog person, I'm not biased, I like all animals. It's just that statistics show dogs are the best. (Those statistics are clearly fact, and not something I made up).
