Hello, I'm Leah. I'm a designer.
People may tell you I am a quiet and reserved person - and they wouldn't be wrong. The Stephen King quote above simplifies my philosophy. I am a passionate person, who cares deeply for my friends and family. I am outspoken when it is important to me, though I find my strength in picking my battles wisely. My mind is always racing, thinking of the next great thing to work on, and the next thing I am going to do. I enjoy planning and organizing, keeping my thoughts and life in order while being as productive as possible.
I am currently in a battle to train my energetic puppy, a terrier mix named Princess Aurora. She did a better job living up to her Sleeping Beauty namesake when she was a baby, and I am gaining a great deal of patience because of her. I didn't just name my pup Aurora because of her impressive sleeping skills, but because of my love for any and all things Disney. I love to travel, and a bucket list item of mine is to visit all six of the Disney parks around the world. I am currently two for six - ask me which two; you might be surprised.
I love creating simple, yet beautiful designs that speak for themselves, working mainly in print. I dabble in web design and find coding to be a trying yet rewarding task. Beyond design, I also enjoy expressing myself through writing, and I freelance for a once-monthly magazine to keep up with my writing skills. Though I enjoy writing for myself and getting to be creative with my prose, I generally write opinion editorial pieces or in AP Style, and have a more formal, yet relaxed, writing style.
Coffee and I are close friends, and I am always up for a cup - I'd love to get to know you. Check out my résumé for more information on my work and experience.
