Currently seeking a new design role!

I am currently seeking a new design role either with IBM or a related company in the ATX. Due to the reorganization, I have been affected by the annual RA that has occured on my team and greater department as of March 19 and have been seeking new employment opportunities within IBM as well as other tech and ad agencies in Austin, TX.

I view this as not a failure but a great opportunity for career advancement. As a new employee, I have learned a tremendous amount in my short 8 months at IBM and I hope to continue the journey in the future, whether it is within a new team or within a new company altogether. I am dedicated to a career in design - it is in my fabric, in my DNA. As an artist, a maker, and a design-thinker, there simply is no other option but to create and express myself through visual communication. I am inspired by the designers and artists who have pioneered this industry, design influencers and marketing leaders, and the spirit and design culture that is so prominent here in Austin, Texas. There is no doubt in my mind that I will find my niche.

Jeff Weiner, CEO of LinkedIn rationalizes that "Inspiration comes from three things: clarity of one's vision, courage of their conviction and the ability to effectively communicate both of those things." I am inspired to produce beautiful, meaningful, and functional pieces. I am courageous and possess conviction and accountability in my work. I perpetually practice and seek better methods of communication, both in the everyday and through my art. The opportunity for change can only create new opportunities for growth and success.

Please take a look around my new web site. has been overhauled with a new facelift. Since 3/19 I have worked full-time to bring this updated site to fruition. I think it is much improved, and I hope you agree! For questions/comments/concerns/inquiries, please contact me!
