I was born to design
I am a Purdue Graduate as of May 14th 2011, with a Bachelor
of Arts Degree in Visual Communications Design, and a minor
in English. Many of my hobbies and interest from an early age
have revolved around design, color, photography, drawing,
reading and writing.

Below you will find sample images and descriptions from my
portfolio. After the last sample page I have listed my contact
information and the best way to get in touch with me.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions. I look
forward to hearing from you. Enjoy!

Tampons with a new look. Most current packaging says right on the box that numerous amounts of tampon shaped cotton
are within, where my design has a removable band that allows for a more free display inside ones home. Additionally, the box
has a unique top that is easily popped open by squeezing and closed by gently pressing down. The ad is designed to show off
this unique feature and doubles as a coupon for the viewer to detach and use.

Love typography
Letter Combination identity and Sketch Book Compilation
The introduction to this text reads:
“First design junior year,
combine two letters I hand you here.
Make them one unified design,
plan out, tweak and refine.
Make sketches with pen and paper
make them bold, do not taper.
Then use real typeface.
To these ten typefaces you are bound:
Baskerville, Bodoni, Caslon, Futua, Garamond,
Gill Sans, Helvetica,
Times New Roman, Univers, and Optima.
Be sure to consider shape, style, size,
and space, overlap, reverse,
and rotate, distortion and readability,
eliminations and integrity.
In the end the process bound,
that compilation is what you have found.”

An Emotional Collision

Ebook Design
html coded and formated for the Kindle.
Every part of this ebook, the cover, the title, the text layout, the illustrations, and even the story
itself, were designed and written by me. The idea for the story came from true events. When
I was still in high school a close friend of mine was killed in a car accident by not wearing his
seatbelt. The story here, relates the events of that painful time.
