I am a multi-faceted designer living in San Francisco.

I have a dual BFA in Graphic Design and Printmaking and a minor in Spanish from Colorado State University. I am currently attending California College of the Arts as an MFA in Design candidate set to graduate in May of 2014. My MFA coursework is focused on designing for social change, human centered design, and sustainability. Follow my MFA Coursework here.

Primarily a visual designer, my work includes branding + identity, publication design, environment design, UX, design research, and interaction design. Currently I work as the Communications Manager for the MFA Design program at CCA, and as a freelance designer. I own and run Alchemy+Ink on the side.

Outside of the studio, Jennifer can be found camping along the pacific coast with her partner in their '89 Volkswagen Vanagon, collecting feathers and bones, dabbling in metalsmithing, reading philosophy, and taking arial dance classes.
