I am a writer and graphic designer born and raised in West Virginia. As a mixed race, mixed gender, and mixed genre artist, I dedicate my work to fighting white supremacy, celebrating black / brown / queer / trans liberation, and healing home. My social justice practice starts with grounding my creativity in the mountains – in its histories, lived experiences, and futures.


I offer the following skills:

Graphic Design

I love layout. I design print publications and promotional materials, including literary journals, brochures, program booklets, posters, postcards, business cards, and digital ads.

Book Design

As a writer, I love working with authors to create a distinctive cover and/or interior layout that evokes the essence of their writing.

Web Design

I love designing the visual concept for a new website. I focus on creating a unique logo mark and sensory experience using texture, color, and typeface. I'm not a web developer; I install a Wordpress CMS and customize responsive themes.

Media & Communications

I love brainstorming and envisioning messaging and communications strategies for grassroots groups. I support campaigns by writing articles, press releases, or copy for grant applications; creating compelling social media content; or through basic photography, video editing, and sound design.

Featured Work

I support artists, activists, and healers who are also women, queer and trans people, and people of color.


Working with Jai has been and continues to be a great experience. Jai is able to take the multitude of details needed for an event and create a coherent and beautiful design. Jai is extremely timely and responsive to all questions. Jai helps make an image come to life through an acute sense of the overall vibe of what is to come.
