About

I am a proud native of Mississippi, the birthplace of music and art. I grew up loving the feeling of a pen or paintbrush in hand. I always assumed art would remain simply a hobby in my life.

I entered college pursuing a degree in Political Science. Sophomore year I took a drawing class as an elective "just for fun". Little did I know this would reignite my love for the arts. I realized that I was created to be creative. New to the world of graphic design and computerized creativity, I fell in love with the balance of creative expression and practical function.

Through long hours, hard work and the guidance of many skilled mentors I am thankful to have sharpened my skills. I pursue the arts both professionally and recreationally. I truly love what I do, and have a passion for artistic excellence.

Employee Q&A

Tell us a little bit about yourself.

Born and raised in the beautiful Laurel, MS. I've always loved Mississippi and being a southerner. I enjoy the culture and hospitality of the south. I am a lover of people, art and music, so I have found a happy home in Jackson. I love traveling and experiencing what the rest of the world has to offer. I have gone and seen yet Mississippi will always mean home to me. 

How did you become interested in design?

I tried to run but design sought me out. I tried to neglect all the parts of me that love creating by convincing myself it wasn't a feasible profession. However, my love for function and form met beautifully in graphic design and I haven't second guessed it again. 

What's your best professional achievement?

Finding a career that brings so much joy that the end of the work day often sneaks up on me. 

Give us two truths and a lie.

  1. I am one of ten children.
  2. I have been swimming with alligators. 
  3. I have been skydiving.
