Inspired by Daniel Kahneman's research, I've conducted three separate studies to examine the ways in which I am experiencing and remembering aspects of my life. By accompanying visualized data with illustrations, I not only juxtapose the nature of factually and emotionally driven content, but also explore multiple outlets to engage viewers with my findings and reflections. By comparing and contrasting quantifiable data to my own daily memories and similar studies conducted by experts in the field, I've been able to reflect on ways of bringing my two selves closer together to find what truly brings value and happiness to my overall life.

In this class assignment, I chose two words that are trending in online dictionary searches. Using the format of an easily reproducible, risograph printed pamphlet, I not only visually define the words syzygy and post-truth but I also describe why they are relevant in the context of today.
Identity exploration for Auto/Pilot Coffee Roasters. This is a personal project that I gave to myself, out of my love for coffee and my interest in how people prevent themselves from daydreaming their days away.
WJZP, a non-profit Portland Maine variety radio station, approached my design studio class with requests for a new logo and web presence. The station was founded on a love for Jazz music, and has since sought to include a little, "Portland flavor," to their variety. This new look that I proposed to Dennis and Loida is inspired by the colors and energy of traditional jazz, with the sleekness of a contemporary crowd and radio station.
Geary's Brewing Company approached Maine College of Art's Design Studio class to create a poster that celebrates Geary's as "New England's First Craft Brewery." Under their new owners, Geary's is looking to capture the interests of a younger generation while still providing for those who have been cracking open a cold one since 1983.
The Speckled Egg Co. supplies organic, free range chicken eggs to local grocery stores and markets in New England. Each of our farms are founded with the treatment and health of our hens as first priority. We find that our love for the uniqueness behind every hen and every egg, reflects in our passion behind a humane and sustainable farming practice.
This egg packaging project was part of a class assignment.
This poster was designed for a book talk in Portland, on George Orwell's, 1984. This concept was presented to the event coordinator and University of New England professor as part of a class assignment. The use of the hourglass represents not only the eight in 1984, but also provokes the feeling of time running out for the novel's main character, Winston, as he submits to Big Brother.
