The Portland Mercury
Art Director
From 2015-2020, I was Art Director at local media organization, The Portland Mercury. I led the visual direction by engaging with some of the most vital media-makers and cultural outlets in town, working with writers and artists to cover news and entertainment, producing original art and design for over 200 issues. 

I also helped concept, produce, and present a variety of events with the Mercury to explore how else the company could connect to readers, such as Weed the People, The I, Anonymous Show, Portland Burger Week, and HUMP! Film Fest.
