About Me

Art Director • Designer • Letterer

I am a designer & adventurer based in Chicago, IL. I love letters and floral shirts (and a few other things, too). I have the wonderful job of using my hands to blend the beautiful with the practical. Doing more than pushing pixels, I get to take ideas and turn them into something physical. I truly enjoy designing and the process it involves. Let's create something together!

I'm not one for résumés, but if you're interested in seeing mine, you can download it here.

Oh, and it's pronounced "ah-day"
