I grew up in Greensburg, PA which is about 45 minutes southeast of Pittsburgh. My grandfather got me interested in drawing and storytelling at a very young age. When I was about 7 we created a comic strip about a mouse named Scrapps, who had a knack for solving mysteries. One comic featured Scrapps as a contestant on Jeopardy and when the shows host Alex Trebek goes missing, Scrapps jumps into action unraveling the mystery and catching the kidnapper!
I continued to draw and write though high school and decided to go to The Art Institute of Pittsburgh for graphic design. In 2009 I graduated with my Bachelors degree, moved to Michigan and have been designing ever since!
I am a graphic designer and marketing coordinator for Genesys Health System. I design logos, websites, ad campaigns and printed materials for various programs and affiliate companies. In my free time I provide design and marketing solutions for individuals and business both big and small.
I am currently seeking a full-time position with a design studio or advertising agency. With over 5 years design and marketing experience, I feel I would be a strong addition to any creative team.
From small businesses to large corporations, it's important to have a memorable logo design that sticks with customers. I have a strong understanding of how logo design and corporate identity work together within the overall brand.
I've designed websites for individuals and businesses both big and small. I have a strong understanding of grid layout systems, typography and responsive web design. I am also familiar with WordPress and other CMS platforms.
From brochures and booklets to package design, if it can be printed I can design it. I know how to properly prepare files for production and I'm familiar with various printing methods such as screen printing, letterpress, digital and offset printing.
With over 5 years marketing experience, I have a strong understanding of online marketing and how blogging, social media, email and mobile marketing work together. I'm also familiar with Google AdWords and Google Analytics.
