DESIGNER / ILLUSTRATOR / CARTOONIST

Biography

As a designer, I find fulfillment in implementing illustration into my designs whenever possible. I believe this sets me apart from most designers who are not illustrators themselves. In my current position, I enjoy the sense of creativity for which my company strives. My employers rely on my strong interest in logo design and development, as well as my knack for maintaining a cohesive scope. My rich background as a designer makes me excited to tackle any new project.

I graduated from Austin Peay University in May 2013 with a BFA in Visual Communications/Graphic Design. Currently, I'm enrolled in the grad program at the University of Memphis focusing on my MFA. My GA duties include working on various design projects for the Art Department as well as instructing the Computer Assisted Graphic Design course each semester.

I also work for True Temper Sports in the Marketing Department as a Graphic Designer focused on printed advertisements, social media ads, web ads, video editing, golf shaft graphics, internal documents, product photography, apparel, packaging, and a wide variety of other diversified forms of media.
