ABOUT ME: I’m a designer with a focus on sustainability and event branding. I was born in sunny Charlotte, North Carolina, I grew up in Eau Claire, Wisconsin (Go Pack) and I now live and work in Minneapolis. While serving on the Board for AIGA Minnesota as the Associate Director of Sustainable Design, I helped implement annual programming using design to educate the community on environmental issues and train designers to integrate sustainable practices into their client work. A Full-Time Part-Timer, I currently split my time between my designer role at Pollen Midwest and my Communications Manager role at Juxtaposition Arts.
