It’s been a decade since I first opened Adobe InDesign.
I’m thankful every day that my mom forced me to take yearbook as an elective during my freshman year of high school. That’s where I learned the basics of design and ultimately found the spark that drove me to pursue marketing and design as a career.
I've had the opportunity to explore design through many different avenues, both visually and verbally. But good design isn’t just about being an Adobe Creative Suite wizard — it's about solving real problems. I enjoy learning just as much as I love executing what I've learned, which helps me create efficient, effective solutions for projects. Plus, I’m a firm believer that design extends beyond an artboard in a software program or a sketchbook drawing. It encompasses looks, emotions, feelings, senses and … well, a lot more.
Today I work as a marketer at an Indianapolis venture studio, touching nearly every marketing channel. My work revolves around content marketing, events, community management, and yes, the occasional design task.
When I’m not writing or designing, you’ll find me exploring different neighborhoods of Indianapolis, sipping on local coffee and loving on my two friendly dogs.
