Two badass women on a mission to help your business grow.

Here's Our Story

Located in Memphis, TN, Timber Dark Design was formed by two female badasses who have a passion for designing and building websites for small to mid sized businesses. Having worked together at two jobs, we decided the 8-5 grind wasn’t for us, and our styles were too similar to NOT join forces together. It’s our mission to not only be one of the best female led web design teams in Memphis, but to also empower other small businesses and make the world a more beautiful place one website at a time.




“Nothing ventured, nothing gained.” When I first heard those words years ago, they struck a chord in me, and this short yet powerful proverb has been at the forefront of my life ever since. As a creative artist I’m prone to taking risks and pushing the envelope. If there’s a rule, I want to see how far I can bend it. This mindset has led my life to where it is today, and I wouldn’t change a damn thing.

I grew up in an artsy household where both of my parents were talented graphic illustrators. So naturally I, too fell in love with design. I’ve been a graphic/web designer for the past 10 years. Originally from the Chicago area, I moved to Memphis just over 5 years ago. It’s here that I met Hayley, and together we took one of the biggest risks of our lives and started Timber Dark together. Now we get to do what we love while helping other small businesses. The biggest risks have the best payouts.

My family and I reside in MidTown, where we enjoy growing our patio garden, watching trash tv, and thrifting. I’m a photographer in my (ha!) free time, my favorite game of all time is Red Dead Redemption, and I have a deep affinity for anything from the Wild West era.

Howdy! I’m a Memphis native who’s always loved artsy stuff growing up. I worked at a few agencies doing mainly print design and logo design, but I soon came to realize that I had a passion for designing websites. That wasn’t enough for me though – I wanted to actually build them out and see them come to life. Now I’m living my dream job where I get to do that everyday while also helping other businesses grow!

When I’m not working, I’m probably playing video games (been really into the Witcher 3 lately), playing guitar, dreaming of traveling abroad (thanks, COVID), photographing people, going on nature walks, playing Dungeons and Dragons with friends, working out, or just chillin at home with my Fiancé and our two VERY spoiled cats.
