I partner with people and brands who contribute positively to culture and the planet. I’m a good listener who loves visual details and humble, but powerful ideas.

I don’t like stuffy work. I prefer making things that breathe with humanity. I look for life in design everywhere: an unexpected font combination, a hand-drawn icon system or copy that reads like a conversation with someone you know.

I started my design business in 2012, but I have been designing independently for artists, nonprofits and small businesses for over a decade. Prior to starting my own business, I worked as an art director at the ad agency HAVAS Worldwide. While there, I oversaw the development of print, TV, digital and integrated campaigns. I have an MFA in Design from the School of Visual Arts.

Life before design included a two year stint teaching English in Japan, five years studying art and human ecology in Maine and a mostly rosy childhood in the suburbs of Portland, Oregon.

To give my eyes a break, I ride my bike around Brooklyn, cook meals from scratch and ponder how my dream apartment would differ from my actual one.

In addition to visualizing ideas, I also enjoy writing. I’m a guest contributor at The Girl Who Knows, and I write about design here.
