I am a conceptual designer with a life-long passion for visual problem-solving and a genuine desire to create good work. My interest in design started around the age of 5 when I created fond memories playing with SuperPaint on my family’s Macintosh Classic. As I progressed through childhood in the digital age my fascination with computer graphics did as well. I enjoyed experimenting with early forms of HTML and became proficient in Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator throughout my high school career and jumped at any chance to improve upon my skills. Pursuing a post-secondary education in Graphic & Interactive Design at Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia was a challenging and rewarding next step.
Today, I am an Art Director at AkinsParker, a full-service design and advertising agency in Santa Ana, California. I am part of a team of talented creative thinkers who work together to develop innovative ideas and designs for our clients. My work ranges from print & digital design, branding, layout, packaging, illustration, and more. I also have a working knowledge of front-end coding and a desire to learn more in this skill set.
