About Me

WKU | Bachelor of Arts
ADVERTISING MAJOR
GRAPHIC DESIGN MINOR

My Background in Design:

  • Education
    • Western Kentucky University | 2012 - 2016
    • While at WKU, I took many Advertising courses, Graphic and Web Design courses, and more recently Interactive and User Experience Design courses. These courses have helped develop my professional skill set, from more effective ways to come up with design concepts to furthering my experience with coding languages like HTML and Javascript. I also took a curriculum of fine arts classes that included drawing and painting, and taught me how to push myself to constantly improve my skillset as a designer and artist.
  • Experience
    • Imagewest at WKU | 2015 - 2016
    • Graphic Designer + Lead Web Designer
    • Imagewest is a student-run ad agency on WKU's campus. Some of my tasks as a graphic designer included conceptualizing and creating brand identity, logos, designing page layouts in InDesign, and developing style guides for clients. I spent 3 semesters at Imagewest as a web designer which included developing, modifying and maintaining websites and blogs for clients, generating more effective SEO, modifying Javascript and PHP functions as well as functioning as a graphic designer and mentor to newer design students.
