I am an art director, designer, photographer and constant adventurer. Originally from the peaks of Boulder, Colorado, I grew up with mountains as my monkey bars and the snow-covered slopes as my slides.
Somewhere in between my vertical challenges, I fell in love with visual storytelling. Always experimenting with photography, design and doodling the world around me, art direction was the clear choice in allowing me to pursue the variety of creative mediums that I am passionate about.
In 2013, I graduated from University of Colorado at Boulder, double-majoring in Italian and Creative Advertising and leaving with an award for best print campaign and two international nominations for print and nontraditional campaigns.
In 2015, after a year of freelancing with start-ups and entrepreneurs to help them build their identities and creating content for a large U.S. telecom company, I made a jump over to Europe for a new adventure. The next chapter began in Italy, collaborating with photographers and eating an abundance of pizza. I then moved to the creative mecca of Amsterdam where I continued my dream as an art director working at TBWA / United State of Fans, freelancing, collaborating with creatives, adventuring on a bike and trying to find the mountains which the Dutch have seemed to have hidden so well.
If you are in need of design, art direction, branding, event photography, creative visual work or happen to find any sign of higher elevation in the Netherlands, please contact me.
