Des Moines, Iowa born and raised. ISU grad with a degree in Graphic Design. I am a mountain biker that lacks balance, a musician that actively avoids reading notes, and a cook who frequently goes off the recipe. Due to Iowa’s current lack of mountains, I’m always planning my next trip to somewhere scenic and off-grid. As a kid, I enjoyed taking things apart and putting them back “together”. I still enjoy this process today, but my focus has shifted to the web. If a website has a wow factor, chances are I’m pulling it apart to see how it was made.
