I’m a designer and creative strategist with 10+ years of experience. I solve problems holistically, considering people, beauty, and business. I design solutions collaboratively, working closely with project and client teams and using a human-centered design approach. I apply this design approach to systems, environments, busineses,  brand stories, curriculum, programs/workshops, or processes.

I’m currently available for full-time work, contract engagements, or interesting chats.  

Let’s design engaging experiences together.

About my approach

I design by researching
to discover connections
that lead to new opportunities
and unexpected solutions.

I innovate by testing ideas
early in the design process:
prototype, learn, improve.
