I am a graphic designer based in Tahoe City, CA with a passion for lettering, boutique brands, and a DIY attitude. I launched Pendulum in the Spring of 2018 and have been focusing on brand and packaging design for small businesses.
I have a decade of experience in branding, web design, packaging and traditional print design. I’ve worked up and down the west coast for clients ranging from large corporations like Pepsi, Oracle, and Kodak, to small family-owned brands and restaurants.
