Macgyver-like polymath who likes creating and helping.
Children's book designer by day, maker of miscellany by night
As a graphic designer with a strong background in typography, I relish in organizing information both digitally and manually. I love books--both as a medium and subject. After spending most of my day working on screen, I also have a strong desire to make things by hand. I have recently opened an Etsy shop to sell my handmade soaps and I hope to expand it soon to include other pieces. I'm always looking for new projects and challenges, so feel free to contact me to discuss custom work!
As a recent graduate from an MFA program at Cranbrook Academy of Art in the 3D design program, my work focused greatly on conceptual furniture objects. This two year program developed my craft and creative skills, which aided in re-envisioning interiors and developing new interactions within the domestic and public spaces. Functionality, purpose and form have fueled my design work to create new narratives among artistic objects.

The Feather Forge
I've been making things with whatever I could get my hands on for my entire life. My interest in design eventually lead to a masters degree in architecture, which has given me a good grounding in the design process and collaborative work. My current work is focused on bending wire into interesting shapes and ornamenting it with random found objects and beads, mostly as jewelry, and the occasional digital artwork or graphic design project.
