Design + Art Direction
Hello! I'm an art director at Atlanta magazine, Atlanta's longest running city-magazine. Prior to working at a glossy, I spent 2.5 years as a graphic designer for Creative Loafing, Atlanta's longest running alt-weekly. On the side, I'm a co-founder/creative director/designer for Dope Girls, a zine for women who smoke weed (total disclaimer: I'm not a lazy stoner, promise!). Dope Girls also produces a slew of merch, and hosts events to raise money for Planned Parenthood Southeast.
Before living in Atlanta, I grew up in the suburbs of D.C. and was heavily influenced by the city's D.I.Y. punk scene. My formative years were spent behind a drumkit in addition to being a jack-of-all-trades for band related artwork. A few years playing music in Nashville - culminating with a two week gig selling merch for alt-rock legends, Mudhoney - convinced me to switch focus to design.
