Where are you from?

I am from North Dakota. I was born in Grand Forks, but was raised in Minot.

Tell us a little bit about you.

I have lived in North Dakota my whole life in a few different cities. I have called Bismarck my home for the past decade, but recently relocated to Fargo. I graduated from Bismarck State College with a degree in Graphic Design & Communications and have been doing design work for a few years now, and I absolutely love it.

If there was a movie about your life, who would play you and why?

Chris Hemsworth. I can't think of someone who resembles me more.

What is your favorite thing to do in your spare time?

I enjoy relaxing and taking in various forms of art, whether it's music, film, theatre, writing, etc.

What’s a ridiculous fact about yourself?

I put hot sauce on almost everything. It's a problem.

What part of your position provides the most value?

I love designing things that attract and captivate people. Getting someone to pay attention to the subject matter and make an impact is so important, especially in today's age.

Tell us about your experience.

I have been doing graphic design for a few years now. After graduating college. I have worked both as a freelance graphic designer, and a web designer for Flyway Media. I have got to work on a lot of really cool projects and with great people. I have loved every moment so far.

What part of your job do you believe makes the most impact?

Being able to draw in a persons eye when flipping through one of our publications to a business, organization, or person, and getting them to read and learn about them, potentially bringing them leads and attention is awesome for me.

Why does our community matter to you?

I have only been a part of the Fargo-Moorhead-West Fargo community for a few months, but I have only had great experiences. I have felt welcomed and accepted, and I hope to add to this positive energy.
