When did you start working at TSG?
February 2020

Where are you from?
Lowell, Massachusetts

What do you do at TSG HQ?
I have the pleasure of designing the spreads and layouts for guides.

How did you arrive at TSG?
I had a job back in Boston where I was the only designer at a marketing firm. I had switched to working remotely in August and moved down to Richmond, and immediately fell in love with the area. I knew that I had to find a way to make my stay more permanent, so I began applying for jobs. I discovered TSG and just knew it was the next place I needed to work! I got the job offer and I don’t think I have ever been so happy.

What’s on your desk?
A colorful stack of past guides for inspiration, a “Live Local” water bottle, and an endless supply of clementines. Now if you ask what’s in the drawers, that’s where I hide the mess (I like to keep clean, but ultimately way over-prepare for things).

Words to live by?
Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is a part of life; getting back up is living.

Favorite vacation destination?
Anywhere with my family! I always enjoy stepping away from life to just soak in the laughs and share new memories.

Personal theme song?
“Valerie” by Amy Winehouse

Favorite movie?
The Other Woman. My mom and I sit and watch it every time it is on TV. It’s a guilty pleasure at this point and maybe an addiction.

What’s in your bag?
Way too many things! I commute from Richmond, so I feel like I always overpack for work. There’s lunch, two snacks, a water bottle, ChapStick®, two notebooks (one is for notes, the other for hand lettering), the bottom is always covered in pens/pencils, and so many more things I just am embarrassed to list out.

Best part about working at TSG?
THE PUPPIES!!! I live in a small apartment and can’t have a dog, so getting to come into the office and see them all the time is like therapy.

“That’s so TSG”:
Gold foil and a clean modern layout.
