who i am
Hi, I’m Laura Rider Dutelle. I’m a graphic designer and photographer living in the Pacific Northwest. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in English Literature and Studio Arts Photography from the University of Colorado.

where i work
I’m the full-time, in-house graphic designer at Washington State University Vancouver (Go Cougs!). When I’m not at the university, I freelance -- mostly design and photography.

what i love to do
I love playing outside in the Pacific Northwest. Favorite activities are flyfishing, hiking, camping and going on adventures with my husband and baby boy.

a little about me
My background includes science and health care writing; several of my articles have been published in Dartmouth Medicine Magazine. I’ve also been a crisis counselor for a suicide hotline and a rock climbing instructor ... which (I think) means I’m patient, work well with people and can handle chaos. I'm a National Outdoor Leadership School (NOLS) grad and love the outdoors. I dream about being a children's book author and have at least 10 stories in my head. Someday I'll get them down on paper!
