Bio: I have 10 years of design experience, working for companies such as Dick's Sporting Goods, Gap Outlet, LeapFrog, Gymboree, and dozens of Bay Area wineries. My specialties include print, packaging, production, and hand lettering.

When I'm not busy designing, I can be found practicing hand lettering, watching teen dramas on Netflix, and instagramming my mail (among other things).

Originally from Pittsburgh, PA, I've called the Bay Area home since 2012. I live in an amazing historic building (formerly a cotton mill) with my husband, Joseph, and our two cats— Ferris Bueller and Goonie.
