About me

Minneapolis based designer and illustrator.

 

Thank you so much for your visit to my website.

I hope you enjoyed my artwork as much as I have loved making it for people! 

Born in Chicago, raised in Wisconsin, and attended college in Minnesota. My first instinct was to move to Portland, OR after college to begin my career in the arts. I returned to Minneapolis in 2017 to put my knowledge to work.

Now I live in Minneapolis full time and when I'm not making art or crafting (almost always) I love to sing and spend time with my friends, partner, and cat, Tauntaun who is featured on the illustration page! 

I love to be creatively challenged. My passion is to create compelling designs and illustrations no matter the client.

In combination with my positive attitude and collaborative work style, my ongoing goal is to continue to grow as a designer and leader wherever I may be.

Fun Facts & Proud Moments

The Art of Rick and Morty

After working as a production artist & editorial assistant on The Art of Rick and Morty, I reached out to the creators, Dan Harmon & Justin Roiland, and they agreed to sign my copy! This book continues to do well and the show grows more popular every year.

In 2016, I organized an employee art show for my then employer, Dark Horse Comics. The full title was: Work Horse, Artwork by the People Who Make Your Comics. This art show was featured in The Oregonian for best events to see in December of 2016.

One of my first real jobs in the arts after I moved to Portland was as a sign painter. I worked at a company called Custom Wood Signs and was the lead painter there. Eventually customer facing and working in early phases of design, this is where it all began for my career.
