I graduated from the University of Notre Dame with a BFA in Graphic Design. My career began typesetting signage at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago. I eventually found my way to The Royal Order (now part of O&M) where I cut my teeth on digital branding and focused on eCommerce sites for Kohler, CB2, Patagonia, and Mozilla.
In 2011, I became independent, which allowed me to both lead projects and still get my hands dirty designing every day. Since then, I've enjoyed teaming with great agencies such as Critical Mass and VSA Partners; institutions such as Northwestern Law and Notre Dame; and Chicago-based product companies such as Basecamp, Signal, Ideal, and EveryBlock.
