I started working at TSG at the end of March 2018.
Where are you from?
I grew up in San Diego, California, and moved to Virginia in 2005.
What do you do at TSG HQ?
As Art Director, my goal is to uphold and continuously elevate the value of the TSG brand in an effort to help local businesses showcase their authentic values and personalities to connect with their communities. In addition to helping elevate each spread and graphic piece to its most refined form through craft checking, I also aim to extend a friendly hand and open-door policy throughout the entire creative process.
How did you arrive at TSG?
I first saw TSG Hunt Country in 2014 when I lived in Northern Virginia. To this day, I remember many of the spreads for their visual brilliance and clarity. Four years later, after grinding out editorial design as Art Director for multiple equestrian magazines, I happened upon the Art Director position at TSG HQ online and it became my highest priority to get a foot in the door.

Two framed photos of my daughter, Indigo; various lifestyle magazines; photography books by the likes of Richard Avedon, Ansel Adams, and Elliot Erwitt; an inclusive guide to Wingdings; and a Pantone color book.
