Hello 🙂  I’m a graphic designer based in Grand Rapids, MI.

Currently part of the creative team at Lipman Hearne, I have over fifteen years of experience in the industry.

From 2016 to 2020, I served as a faculty member at Grand Valley State University, where I taught beginning through advanced courses in Typography and Graphic Design. 

My work for the arts and culture industries has been published by Farrar Straus and Giroux, S. Fischer Verlag in Germany, Yep Roc Records and Northwestern University, among others.

Between 2012 and 2015, I held design roles at agencies Razorfish and Sapient Nitro, where I contributed to the creation of intuitive and beautiful digital experiences for Fortune 500 and 1000 companies.

From 2004 to 2009, I was part of the award-winning Marketing & Graphics team at Zingerman’s, a company once named “the coolest small company in America” by Inc. Magazine.
