Solving the problem of clichés.

Higher education deserves amazing, polished design, as do presidential candidates, which is how my career began. In 1999, I found myself on a team designing websites for political campaigns, including that guy from Texas, George W. Bush. 

The majority of my experience has been designing for higher education. Most recently, I was a Senior Designer for Columbia College Chicago, but I jumped at the chance to join my former colleague Ben Bilow and the rest of the team at mStoner. It’s fun for me to bring outstanding design to college and university websites, where staying ahead of the curve can be a challenge. 

In my former life (also known as “Before Kids”) I moonlighted as an illustrator. For now, my two young daughters keep me busy outside of work – and constantly inspire me to include a little pink in my life.
