Art Background 2

I am one of those rarities- someone who was both born in Washington, DC and still lives there today. After graduating from UMBC (University of Maryland Baltimore County) in 2007 with a BA in Graphic Design and a minor in Art History, I came back home to DC seeking work and a fresh perspective on a familiar town.

As a designer primarily, I have created materials for all sorts of acronyms (such as UMBC, UMD, FAA, CDC, CBP, TBG) as well as for several musicians and other businesses. I am most passionate about print design, specifically typography, and I love photography as well as handwriting as an art form.

When I’m not pursuing my artistic endeavors, I can be found exploring DC on foot, planning my next trip, playing music, and cheering for the Washington Capitals. One of my favorite quotes comes from the great Andy Warhol: “Art is what you can get away with.”
