Hello! Welcome to my portfolio website. I am a 2016 graphic design graduate who has landed an awesome web development & interactive design career with Shift Interactive here in Des Moines, Iowa. I also enjoy 3D modeling, illustration, brand identity, and more. I’d love to pick up side projects here and there as I can — shoot me a message if you’re interested.
Apart from design, I spend my free time taking care of my plants, trying out new recipes, reading, drinking five cups of coffee, shopping around the farmer’s market, catching up on the latest episode of whatever TV show is my current vice, spending quality time with people I enjoy, and making every day a non-zero day.
What’s a non-zero day? Making sure you don’t let a single day pass without doing something, anything, no matter how seemingly insignificant, towards the goals you have in your life. Write one sentence. Do one pushup. It’s the easiest thing in the world to actually do, but it’s a valuable exercise because it gets us in the habit of doing and thinking about our goals every single day. Once you do that one pushup, you might easily find yourself doing 20. Once you write that sentence, it’s easy to write a whole page. The commitment is small, but it’s just the nudge a lot of us need.
