Interested in design strategy and learning more about user experience design, but will always enjoy the physicality
of physical, printed objects.
I work hard to make sure I am proud of everything I make.
I have high expectations of myself, and strive to meet
them every day.
EXPERIENCE Trendy Minds + Tactic Marketing
Indianapolis, IN
Sept 2015 - Nov 2015
Worked on both print and web collateral to assist both
design teams while gaining valuable insight into both large and small agency life. I learned how to work with a team to
complete multiple projects at a time on tight deadlines, as well as how to communicate with, and stay connected to, everyone
working on a project.
Keith Marketing Group
Indianapolis, IN
May 2014 - August 2014
Worked on a variety of designs, for a variety of clients, to be screen printed on shirts. I also worked on the shop floor,
helping with printing. I learned to, quickly, use a new computer program, and how to design for different clients that must also be appropriate for screen printing.
Dog Dayz
Noblesville, IN
April 2012 - June 2014
Cared for up to 100+ dogs with a small staff. Managed and coordinated all three playrooms, cleaning duties, and all morning shift responsibilities. Learned to lead and work with a team to get things done on tight time frames, in both optimal and less than ideal conditions.

Asked local art & music
fans about which parts of
our system they thought
were most useful.
Used industry
professionals to help us
determine who would be
involved with the different
components of the
musician organization.
Created our organization’s
structure and shared it
with an industry expert to
finalize our framework.
OUTSIDER INPUT
Took our refined structure
and framework to someone
outside the industry, who
has experience with
non-profits, to figure out
how it should operate.

Skateboarding sparks ambition in kids. It helps
them learn to set goals, and achieve them,
while having fun. Without skateboarding, some
kids would never know the pride in following
something through to the end.

Solution
Thr�ugh �ur expl�rati�n �f the Indianap�lis
music scene, we disc�vered the need f�r a
central res�urce.
SIGNIFICANCE
Many of our solution ideas either already exist, in some form, or
have been talked about in the community. The problem is that no
one business wants to be in charge, or they aren’t exactly sure
how and where to start. Our hope is that if one entity is facilitating
these things, like relationships between local musicians or helping
less experienced musicians learn valuable skills, we can make the
Indianapolis music scene a more engaging experience; and local
musicians won’t have to leave if they want to “make it big”.
