My name is Sarah,
it says so on every page.

I am a lot of things—ambitious, creative, sarcastic, hard-working, addicted to Pinterest, self-motivated, and truly passionate about design. I love what I do and can’t imagine doing anything else.

I am originally from Chicago—with a 4-year stint at Michigan State University somewhere in the middle. Chicago is amazing, but winter is not. So, I sold my stuff and drove to San Francisco with my hubby and two cats in tow. Since moving to the West Coast, I’ve discovered a love for nature, hiking and all things outdoors, I am totally ok with eating dinner at 5pm, and work/life balance is key to a happy life, especially when the sun is shining. Deadlines are important, but so is Happy Hour.

My design style is trendy, graphic, and simple. There is so much strength in simplicity when it’s done right and I approach every project with that in mind. My portfolio gives you a little snapshot of my style, but every project is unique and my skills and style are ever-evolving.

I try to stay plugged-in to design trends and techniques as best I can. I taught myself HTML and CSS back when MySpace was cool and have continued to hone those skills—the coding skills, not MySpace—ever since. Coding is something that both fascinates and infuriates me. It’s problem-solving at its best and I can’t get enough of it.

So, that’s me—a designer, blogger, pinner, hiker, part-time coder, and city dweller.
