about

Living in: Dublin, Ireland
Originally from: Davenport, Iowa (USA)

When I moved to Dublin in 2012 the plan was a year working abroad before starting my career with my journalism degree. But the path diverged, and instead I have found myself immersed in Dublin's rapidly expanding design field. Here I have had the opportunity to use my creative skills and experience in both freelance and in-house roles for clients based all over the world.


From creating logos and packaging for local start-ups, to print, digital and promotional design for global corporations, my work is never boring or static. And I wouldn’t have it any other way!


If you’d like to have a chat about a collaboration or job opportunity, don’t hesitate to drop me a line. Let’s create something together!
