I was born and bred in Ann Arbor, a quaint college town. Growing up as a young creative, I often found myself getting into trouble doodling on things that shouldn't be doodled on, namely living room walls and decor. Getting scolded and being grounded never stopped me but instead fueled my drive into the visual arts. I continued to pursue my creative endeavors into my undergrad years at Michigan State University, where my interests lead me into the field of visual journalism and editorial design. I've designed for a few clients (Column Five Media, University of Michigan, Eastern Michigan University, Applied Systems, Inc) before finding my way here on staff at Automobile Magazine. I wasn't originally into cars but designing for the magazine has certainly given me a deeper appreciation for the automobile culture and industry.
