I’m passionate about designing interfaces and social media communication that elevate the human experience through the thoughtful application of technology.

Pen and sticky note in hand, I love crafting concepts and visuals that engage and broaden the conversation. I’m finding that incorporating “big listening” techniques, including extensive online and in-person research, help us understand what drives decision-making and the deeper needs. Then, I work with the team to test the effectiveness of the prototypes and campaigns to initiate more compelling interactions that ripple out to both those who agree and disagree.

With 15-years as a freelance graphic and web designer, and illustrator, working across a broad set of industries. I’ve begun actively repositioning my career toward community engagement, utilizing my UX design skills to communicate the heart of the message for advocacy, impact marketing, sustainable design, and Design for Good projects. I’ve also been working with companies and nonprofits to produce clean, connective UI, social media campaigns and experiences for their products and services.

During the down turn of the economy I took time to explore careers in Climate Change, Sustainability, Advocacy and Disaster Assistance. It has been an amazing experience working for people who have dedicated their lives to helping make things better. I spent sometime in Washington DC area volunteering my time to get informed on water issues, sustainability, reuse management, lobbing on Capital Hill, power alternatives, Design for Good. The list is endless.
My focus has been on "persuasion". What works and why from the core values.
I looked the tiger in the eye to see what he sees and feels. This has brought me closer to understanding apposing points of view and how build bridges to more achievable solutions.
I look forward to utilizing my new knowledge to generate truly outstanding results.


I also volunteer with the Red Cross helping people effected by a disaster.
