I recently graduated cum laude from Pennsylvania Western University with a BFA in Applied Media Arts with a concentration in Graphic and Interactive Design.
I have a passion for brand identity, specifically within the food/beverage industry as well as the corporate world. I strive to communicate a clear, effective message to a targeted audience. With one year of an Entrepreneurship major under my belt (before switching to design), I know the importance of having an identifiable brand and reaching the right customers. I love structure and organization, and this comes through in my work. 
Some of my other skills include photography and videography, which I often incorporate into my design projects. I enjoy cooking and writing, interests that I hope will allow me to create a real cookbook one day.
Through my education at PennWest Edinboro, two internships, volunteer and work experiences, I have gained skills in Adobe Creative Cloud, type management, branding + logo design, and formal graphic design principles. Freelancing has allowed me to learn how to communicate with clients, manage my deadlines, and deliver a final project everyone is happy with.
