Born and raised in Boise, ID, I found myself often wanting to venture outside of Idaho after college. While I did venture, it was not as far as I would have expected it to be, and while far from Boise, it’s only an hour and a half from my alma mater in Moscow, ID.

I never thought Spokane would be my home, but rather a stopping point on the way to ‘cooler’ cities. But, to my surprise I have grown to love living here. This city is full of great surprises, and continues to grow in ‘coolness’ – at least in my book – the longer I live here.

I am a print & web designer by day at Gonzaga University, and runner, race director, crafter and freelancer by night. I love giving back to the running community, and I find that running with a group makes it even more enjoyable. Currently I am a member/Vice President/Webmaster/many other duties for the Spokane Swifts Running Team, and sit on the board for Active4Youth. I also have enjoyed being more involved with the design & advertising community in Spokane as a member of AAF Spokane!
