Freelance

Designer

I began taking freelance jobs on the side while working at Eagle's View Church. This really took off during my internship with Matt Wagner Design in Evansville, Indiana. In October, I left my graphic design job at Berry Plastics to start my design business full-time.

Berry Plastics Group

Graphic Designer

At Berry Plastics, I worked closely with the industrial design department to create packaging labels for new and existing industrial design concepts. Working at Berry Plastics was great. I left because I had a great window of opportunity to start my own design business.

Though music was my main responsibility, I was given many design responsibilities at this job as well. This is where what started as a hobby became my career. I was completely self-taught until I decided to take on design as a full time career, at which time I decided to attend Ivy Tech to learn more about my field.
