A little bit about me…

I enjoy working on and leading teams to tackle complex problems. I specialize in early stage conceptualization, research  and user interaction, but have the skills to see a project from inception to final delivery. With experience in both graphic and experience design, I feel comfortable working in a variety of mediums, and like to “wear a lot of hats” when tackling a challenge.  Many of my clients are start-ups and non-profits who are looking for a partner who can offer a full suite of capabilities.

I’m particularly passionate about education and social impact and am personally and professionally motivated to work on projects in either field. I thrive on collaborations and building new things and spend a lot of my free time working with organizations in the community and learning new ways to use design. In the remaining free time I have, you can likely find me hanging out with my husband and flatulent dog, attempting to cook something, and/or perfecting my craft beer snobbery.

Random collection of quotes I enjoy:

  • Fail early and fail often.
  • You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you can never fool all of the people all of the time. -Abraham Lincoln
  • Belong to where you are.
  • If you are not embarrassed by the first version of your product, you’ve launched too late. - Reid Hoffman, LinkedIn Founder
  • Research changes design. Design changes behavior. Behavior changes the world. - Greater Good Studios

I’m always interested in hearing about new opportunities and collaborations. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me with any questions or even just to say ‘hi’.
