I generally describe myself in these situations as “graphic designer // food enthusiast // explorer // attempted diy-er //plant mom // dog mom.” I was born in California but then proceeded to live just about everywhere (including a short stint in Europe) courtesy of my father being a member of the USAF. I attended the Kansas City Art Institute for Graphic Design and then post-grad made the move from Kansas City (MO, not KS) to Bowling Green, Kentucky to begin working at Studio Calico. I love road trips and taking photos (Instagram is my jam). My apartment is 70% plants, 30% furniture. I’m the proud mom of two lovebirds—Tiki and Viola—and (as of November ’16) the smartest and most adorable Miniature American Shepherd—Maple.
