bio

As a child, I spent countless hours doodling anything and everything. During the summer I would attend Watkins School of Design taking cartooning classes under the tutelage of Tim Oliphant. In middle school I served as the illustrator/cartoonist for the school newspaper as well as contributing to the theatrical department by designing set pieces for school plays.


My family was truly responsible for helping me reach my potential at a young age, my grandmother specifically. My great uncle was none other than John Seigenthaler, who taught me a lot about being myself and striving for more out of life. His wife, Joanne, my grandmothers sister is an amazing painter and sculptor and encouraged me to try many things basically daring me to be different.


After high school, I attended Nashville State Community College acquiring my Associates Degree in Visual Communications with an emphasis in Graphic Design. In 2004 I enrolled at Middle Tennessee State University (MTSU) focusing on Journalism: Media Design. In 2008 I earned my Bachelors Degree with two minors, art and writing and then began my career as a freelance designer.
