About

Hey and thanks for your interest in my work! I am a freelance Graphic Designer with extensive Adobe Creative Suite experience, a passion for effective and beautifully designed marketing pieces, and a relentless work ethic. Want to know more? Here’s the good stuff:

  • I am a Greenville, SC native and am very proud to call this friendly, beautiful, and dynamic city my home
  • I have a wonderfully supportive husband, Nick – we have been together since high school and are still going strong
  • In 2012, our lives changed forever as we welcomed our first baby girl, Martha
  • Fast forward to 2016, and our second little lamb, Frances arrived! They both keep us VERY busy, entertained, overjoyed, and fulfilled
  • Why Night Owl Design Co.? See above – much of my design work takes place after the girls go to bed, so I’ve become a bit of a night owl
