Founder & Chief Designer

I love strong coffee, intentional direction and the ocean is my second home. 

I am an optimist by nature and an entrepreneur by heart. My greatest honor is helping business owners succeed online through creative branding, storytelling, and website design. 

I started this business in 2015 as a creative outlet (I solely built WordPress websites at this point) that would also help me score a few extra bucks each month. What started as a small side hustle grew into a whole new purpose in my life fueled by passion for helping small business owners.

Fun Fact 

Designer & Account Manager

I grew up in the snowy mountains of Alaska. During my years in college I took the opportunity to explore what we call “the lower 48” or the contiguous US. That’s actually how I met Nicole, many years ago during my days at USF! 

Life has brought me back to my home state where I currently live with my family and our golden retriever in our perfect little tiny home nestled in the Eagle River valley. Outside of work, I enjoy getting outside to hike, ski, kayak or just go for a walk around the neighborhood. 

I am a creative through and through. The work I do with The Mug brings me so much joy - truly! From brainstorming ideas to working through the creative process, to execution and beyond, I love working with small businesses across the country to bring their vision and goals to life online.

Fun Fact 


Before pursuing my education in business and design, I knew that creating was my outlet. I later developed a love for the world of branding. It resonates with my interests in problem-solving, and concept development.

In my spare time, you can find me at the beach, spending time with my friends and family, or playing with my dog! I also really enjoy traveling and being immersed in different cultures.

I am passionate about empowering businesses to unlock their full potential through design, and I love weaving together creative and strategic thinking.

Fun Fact

Photographer may be my professional title, however, wife, mommy and taco addict are a few others that I rock rather proudly.

On any given day you can find my hair in a ball cap, rocking gym attire chasing my three kids around while jamming to some worship music! The gym is my happy place but mainly so I can eat all the tacos. I laugh at my own jokes and consider myself a professional Kombucha drinker.

The fact that you’re here makes me SO stinking happy, so stay for a while. Making new friends sets my soul on fire!
