Swiss Army Knife of Creative.

Creative adventures are my specialty. I draw inspiration from nature, everything from the bold, vivid colors of daybreak to the raw emotion of experiencing the wilderness. I’m inspired by anything that breaks the constraints of scheduled life and exposes me to the vulnerability of being somewhere wild. The unbridled emotion of connecting with the things that make us human is a driving force in all of my creative work.

People have a natural desire to be seen and heard. As a creative, this is one of my greatest strengths. My clients choose me because I invite their voice into the creative process and help them tell their story in a way that is timeless, attractive and authentic. My knack for empathy makes my clients feel valued as people and feel like their work matters, because it does. Whether the story is being told through a designed piece, photographs, or the written word, those who work with me walk away feeling confident that their story will be known.

I wouldn't be able to deliver exemplary work to my clients without time to recharge. In my free time, I enjoy traveling around the country, climbing (rock, ice, mountains), backpacking, watching Kentucky basketball, reading and watching Doctor Who. Satisfying my personal need for adventure serves to inspire and translates to the quality work for which people seek me out.

Feeling adventurous? Let's talk.
