I’ll happily be busy working all day, as long as I don’t have to do it in one place. I truly love what I do, but can easily get “chicken-cooped” (as my fiancé, Al, would say) if I don’t distance myself from my couch.
Whether I’m working at a coffee shop sipping kombucha and sporting my favorite post-barre athleisure, or sketching by the lake at sunrise, I love creating for people who want fun, conceptual projects that break away from tradition. My least favorite phrase is, “because we’ve always done it this way.” I believe design decisions should be intentional, rather than simply aiming to fit in- because what’s the point in that?
Sunrises are one of my favorite things and the time of day I feel most motivated to jump into work or exercise.
Spread directly on to a banana. On pancakes with syrup. Apples (obviously). Burgers. S’mores…developing a peanut allergy might be my biggest fear.

My legs and feet are essentially one giant bruise in the summer.
Endless hours spent in the back of the car with my family encouraged my travel bug early on. Now, Al and I are quitting our jobs in Madison for a 3-month adventure through Europe before moving to Chicago!
As a true midwesterner, lakes are my happy place. There’s something about the long winters that make you really appreciate sun-filled summer days spent on a boat or at a beach for hours on end.
