I’m an independent art director, designer, copywriter and creative partner.  I love solving business problems by combining research, strategy and great design. Simply put, I’m an innately curious person who loves a creative challenge.  


After graduating from the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, MN, I was hired at Catapult Marketing, a shopper marketing agency in Minneapolis that strives to create a strong connection between retailer, manufacturer and shopper. At Catapult, I learned the art of insight-driven marketing and problem solving, gained immense experience working on dozens of major CPG clients and retailers and helped those clients achieve their goals and win industry awards.

After nearly six years at Catapult, I left my job and set out on a nine month road trip adventure with my husband. We spent our days camping, climbing, hiking and skiing across the western U.S. and Canada. Just living the simple life, and simply living. After returning to Minneapolis, I began a new creative adventure, and in 2013, I formed my business and established myself as an independent art director. Currently I keep very busy (and happy) working on a range of great clients, from major CPG companies to small start-ups to local non-profits. And when I’m not working on those creative challenges, I’m cross-country skiing, mountain biking, road biking, baking, taking adventures both big and small, or tossing a frisbee with friends.
