Hi! I'm Maddie.

You might know me as a web designer, or as a writer.

You might not know that I'm a native Chicagoan who transplanted to the Pacific Northwest—and has spent every moment since then dreaming about my next trip into the mountains.

Or that I'm a cat mom to three foster failures: Cammy, Zoe, and Wally. (My house is pure chaos around feeding time.)

Or that I'm obsessed with film photography, and could talk your ear off about film stocks and medium-format cameras.

Or that I'm embarking on a yearlong project focused on mastering the art of homemade pizza.

Either way: welcome! I can't wait to get to know you.
