MY STORY

HI, I’M AUBREY

A creative problem solver with a passion for all things made by hand.

Design has taught me patience, determination and how to solve problems unconventionally. I have learned to love the challenge of not only creating an appealing visual but also meeting high design standards. It's the progress and potential of a project that keep me driven. Let's create something together.
