A transplanted Clevelander originally from upstate New York, Tara (T-Rex) joined Array almost two years ago. With a Bachelor’s degree in graphic design from Bowling Green State University and an extensive background in packaging and branding, Tara has a wide range of design experience making her a perfect fit for the team. When she’s not at the office designin’ and profilin’, Tara is busy spending quality time with her hubby Eric, being a dog-mom to her corgi pup Zoe and enjoying her favorite Cleveland hot spots – Great Lakes Brewing Company, The Brew Kettle and TownHall in Ohio City.
