I'm thinking a lot about...

“Typography, vintage packaging design, and food! My husband operates an organic vegetable farm, which puts us at the heart of a vibrant foodie community. We also travel extensively during his downtime, which provides me access to constant inspiration around food culture. My travel photos tend to be of signage and packaging ...!”

You should hire me because...

“My design process isn't ego-driven. I want you to sell more product, so sometimes that means facing some harsh truths. If there's a direction we need to take to get there, I'll be the first to tell you so. I have a degree in engineering, so I'm no stranger to project management and meeting timelines and budgets.”
