Innovation, the artist way.

MY STORY

I grew up surrounded by innovators. My father is a pioneer in the public education fundraising industry, and taught me a lot about creative problem solving in the business world. At the age of 13, I traded a couple of hours of yard work for the same amount of time training in Photoshop with an expert in the field, and he provided me with the materials to learn Photoshop and Illustrator on my own.

As a Hillsdale College student, I worked as a designer for the Publications Department, and was promoted to Lead Student Designer within a year. This position required attention to detail while juggling multiple projects and tight deadlines, often working with a great deal of independence and collaborating with other departments on my own. While in the Publications Department, I worked on hundreds of projects, ranging from publications such as Imprimis, the college’s Political Digest with over 4 million readers, and the Alumni Magazine, to marketing for Athletics, direct mail marketing campaigns, and digital marketing for the College’s fundraising and admissions efforts. I was also often responsible for minor copy-editing and ensuring that final products were ready for print. I also led a team of fellow student designers and delegated projects to them based on their capabilities and project timelines.

In addition to my student employment experience, I have been a freelance designer since 2007. This required me to hone my skills in customer service and communication by working with customers from many demographics, as well as time management from juggling multiple clients’ projects while obtaining my education. After graduation, I performed contract design work for Hillsdale College’s Marketing Department for five months, further increasing my experience in the Marketing field.
