Vector self-portrait of just my face

I am an artist and a designer; I am infatuated with science; and I enjoy solving problems.

I like to think of myself as a visual problem solver above all other titles. I work in both print and digital media. The tools I use every day are Adobe XD, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop, a pencil, paper, and my brain. I also frequently use Adobe InDesign, and Adobe After Effects. My degree is a BFA in Biomedical Art, which means I studied art, design, and animation, as well as things like human biology, microbiology, anatomy and physiology, genetics, and population biology.

Perhaps due to my experience working on textbooks, I am fascinated with how people learn and take in information, and that influences my decisions as a designer.

I’m also interested in game theory, and how games can intersect with learning in a positive way. Particularly subjects or topics that lend themselves to the medium, and/or are difficult to learn using traditional teaching methods. I have limited experience here, but I would love the opportunity to grow.

I live in Cleveland, Ohio, and in my free time I take a lot of photos of my two goofy dogs. Sometimes I draw them.
