More about me


Who am I? I'm a Philadelphia-based designer and illustrator who went full-time entrepreneur in the fall of 2015. I'm passionate about design, branding, illustration, and teaching you about all of the above. I can't get enough of doodles, watercolor, surface pattern design, and quirky hand lettering. I got started early with web stuffโ€”my first website was on Geocities (good times). But really, I started blogging again in 2010 about a variety of topics and finally landed on design.

Fun facts: I live with my wonderful boyfriend, Adams, right outside of Philadelphia. We're expecting our first baby! I have a degree in Interior Design; I don't use it. I'm mildly allergic to peanuts. I play the ukulele. Fueled by burritos and pizza. I've watched The Office at least 4x through. I'm a published author of Online Dating Done Right. Things that rock my socks: minimalism, running, carbs, beer, reading, designing fonts, puppies, indie music and films. Want to know more about the lady behind the blog?
