dream. think. create.
behind the creative mind
My daily mission is to live my life creatively. Being creative in every aspect of my life, not just on the computer or on paper.
By bringing a creative mind into my home, I strive design our life to be beautifully imperfect. Being a creative is a blessing from God. You can teach someone how to use photoshop but you can’t teach someone how to see the vision. I have always known that I am meant for more than just making pretty things. I strive to understand the background behind them, the journey of how to get there and the goals of the outcome.
With over 6 years of professional experience, I have learned how to support in a sole creative position as well as working collaboratively with a team.
I am obsessed with doing things the right way. Taking the time to strategize and understand the most efficient way to achieve the goal is my highest priority.
“There are three responses to a piece of design – yes, no, and WOW! Wow is the one to aim for.”
an artist at heart
I am a Colorado native, growing up in Littleton. My roots are still there with my parents living in the house I grew up in. Growing up I have always been interested in art and anything creative. Taking many art and photography classes and creating art in many mediums. I have also spent my entire life in the world of dance. Dancing in studios and on competitive teams throughout my younger years and continuing though college. I danced competitively throughout high school and college. I have taken my dance career into the judging and coaching space which is how I’ve continued to keep dance in my life.
After high school, I attended Colorado State University in Fort Collins where I graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Art in Graphic Design and a Minor in Business Administration. I am and have always been a true artist at heart.
I enjoy making pretty things with my creative mind and my hands. I have always known that I wanted to be in a creative role and am proud to have made this my career. After graduating in 2012, I moved back to Denver area and started working professionally as a designer/art director.
Currently, I work full time as an Art Director for a tech company in Highlands Ranch. I also coach a competitive dance team. I am also a hand-lettering artist and calligrapher and have grown an instagram following for my hand lettering art. I live in Parker, CO with my husband and our two fur babies. I enjoy spending my free time with my family and friends, being active by working out and dancing, cooking and hand lettering. I love finding creative ways to organize my life and create what I call our beautifully imperfect life. There is inspiration all around to live life creatively and I try to embrace that everyday.
Jumping over hurdles every day for internal and external clients. With experience in multiple industries from non-profit to tech to real-estate, I bring a perspective to the job that’s like no other. In my experience I have worked with clients from politicians to sports teams to national membership organizations and more.
