favorite thing about my job:

i love revealing the finished product to our clients and getting to see their reaction. their joy makes all of the hard work and effort worthwhile!

greatest accomplishment:

stepping out of my comfort zone and having the courage to start my own business.

best advice i’ve ever received:

“the more you learn, the more you realize how little you know.”

best design tip:

less is more!
