How can I help you?

Collaborating with you to produce the vehicles, like pitch decks and publications, rich with visual content and the craftsmanship of text— a winning combination of connecting your message with your audience.

Pitch Decks: IPOs, VC pitches, marketing, new product launch, historical, more. A variety of decks across multiple industries with different stories to tell.

Publishing: Self-publishing to corporate publishing. Digital and print. My portfolio includes novels, photo books, annual reports, magazines, newsletters and collateral.

Illustration: New portfolio of illustrations and related textile products. Building my own luxury silk scarf product line infused with my passion for Art Deco and the architecture I get to talk about as a docent with Chicago Architecture Foundation. Visit my Etsy shop for silk scarves and other textile-related products via Society6.

Speaking & Workshops: You can find me around town giving presentations about visual storytelling, creativity. Alternatively, visit my Toastmasters club (#1933228) where I'm working on advanced communication projects (I'm also the club president). OR, on the street leading an architecture tour as a docent with Chicago Architecture Foundation.

I love art. I love history. Especially when there's a story; interpreted for today. Read Less
