I started my career nearly a decade ago when I got my first job in print, creating ads for newspapers and magazines. In the years that followed, I worked my way up to a Creative Director at a digital marketing agency, working with hundreds of small businesses along the way. And while I loved what I did every day, I knew I wanted to call the shots. So I took a leap of faith and I left my 9-5 job to follow my dreams and start my own business.
While I’m originally from Fargo, North Dakota, my family moved to Arizona when I was 6 years-old. I came to love living in the desert, though I briefly moved back to the Midwest to play college basketball at Concordia College. I didn’t know it at the time, but my experience as a college athlete would shape me for years to come. I learned how to work hard, be goal-oriented, and work with a team; and balancing work, school, and basketball was a lesson in time management. Today, these skills allow me to successfully run my own business, and I couldn’t be more grateful for that experience.
As a designer, I consider myself somewhat of a “generalist.” Many designers like to niche down and work exclusively with one type of client or provide specific services. But one of my favorite things about Exo, besides the freedom it gives me, is that every single day looks different.
i love working with clients across a variety of industries on all different types of projects.

behind the name
I've always been passionate about design and its power of expressing thoughts, ideas and feelings in ways that words sometimes can’t. “Exo” simply means “from the outside,” which is how many people will view your business. I want to help you create designs that illuminate the intrinsic value of your business, and capture everything you have to offer.
external; from outside.
