graphic design • web development • problem solving

I’m a graphic designer out of Fort Wayne, Indiana. Through the last 10 years I’ve worked in print, web, marketing, and more. I love the challenge of clearly and efficiently communicating ideas. I’m always interested in freelance work or free work if you have a helpful project.

A side project for helping new players and parks create accessibility.

When I moved to Fort Wayne in 2013 I started being heavily involved in the Fort Disc Golf Club. Other than the enormous passion for the sport, the club is involved with the Fort Wayne Parks Department in helping maintain and improve the parks around the county. One of my largest contributions to both the club and the parks was creating new signage for several of the local courses.

The highlights of the process included launching a Kickstarter to raise money, designing clear and effective signage, and doing the physical production and installation of the signage. In total, with the assistance of several club members, I have created new tee signs for 3 courses and have 3 more in development.
