Hi, I’m Sarah!

I’ve always had a passion for making stuff. I’ve professionally completed over 600 projects.

Education

With a double major in fine arts (with a concentration in graphic design) and language, Sarah earned her BFA in April 2000 from Eastern Michigan University, in Ypsilanti, Michigan.

Work History

Sarah has worked in the creative field since her high school senior co-op in 1996, where she designed embroidered patches. Throughout most of her college years, she worked for the school newspaper, The Eastern Echo. From ‘production director’ to ‘web designer,’ she built the skills she needed to land an internship at a software company in Ann Arbor. There, she designed software interfaces, the company website, instruction manuals, and print materials.

Upon graduating college, Sarah worked as a graphic designer, building websites and presentations. Spring of 2002 sent her out west to follow her dreams.

Since then, she’s added much experience to her resume. Custom WordPress theme design, tons of experience with CSS, print projects, direct mail, event graphics, sign design and production, project management, technical illustrations, and years of freelance have proved that there is little limit to Sarah’s creative learning capabilities.

Community Involvement

Sarah enjoys applying her skills to the community and life around her. In 2005, she started an online jeep club which has since volunteered over 10,000 registered hours with the National Forest Service. She has helped many political candidates with their websites and handouts, and she was elected to political party office and appointed to be a state delegate in 2010 and 2012; and county committee (PC & DC) in 2016! She was the branding sponsor for WordCamp San Diego in 2012, where she designed the conference signs, shirts, badges and other print materials for the sold-out event. She has also judged two children’s art fairs, and donated hundreds of hours to local clubs and networking groups to establish their brand and online presence.
