Nice to meet you!

Thanks for stopping by to peruse my design work. I am an artist by heart and can always be found creating something, from cooking, painting to digital designs galore. My Mississippi roots have taught me to be humble, hospitable and open to new ways of seeing things. I have been a professional designer for over 8 years and am well versed in cohesively designing for different media touchpoints.
