Hello, I’m HR.
As a senior designer based in Denver, I specialize in working with independent publishers as well as individual
artists and writers.

I have nine years of experience as a designer leading teams of editors, writers, and artists to ideate and execute inspiring designs. My professional experiences combined with an MBA as well as an MFA degree allow me to lead from a perspective rich in contemporary industry knowledge while also emphasizing core business principals and historical aspects of design.

My design passion roots from a deep appreciation for typography and the evolution of print bursting into digital. I'm detailed-oriented, creative, and results-driven, and I approach my work from diverse experiences, with a strong vision, and a lot of listening. I also have experience teaching, lecturing, and building curriculum at the university level.
