From a young age, growing up in the small town of Grantsville, MD, Michelle had a strong desire to have a career in the arts. She overcame opposition (a career counselor advised her that she had no aptitude for the arts and would be better suited as a secretary), followed her dream, and studied Mass Communications at Towson University. She went on to earn a Masters in Publication Design from The University of Baltimore.

Since graduating she has enjoyed a long career in marketing and advertising with companies including Erickson Communities, Constellation Energy and, now Millennium Marketing Solutions, where Michelle has served as an Art Director for over five years.

AIGA Baltimore’s Board gives Michelle great opportunities to meet new people and support AIGA’s mission to advocate for the use of good design. When Michelle is not working,  she enjoys painting, playing pool on her APA billiards team and, spending time with friends and family. If you’re looking to make quick friends with Michelle, consider serving her a scoop of Ben & Jerry’s Everything But the Kitchen Sink ice cream (her favorite flavor), or a glass of Captain & Diet (it’s never made her sick, so she swears by it).

And, as for her favorite font, it’s American Typewriter, a highly under-appreciated font that offers variety and many styles. For Michelle, when used with a purpose, it can bring great impact to a design.

I'm writing this in an airplane, flying back to Baltimore from the AIGA National Leadership Retreat, listening to the new At The Drive-In album; with a heart full of love and eyes full of tears I reflect on the impact that AIGA has had on my life, and career.
