Work Experience


Principal & Lead Designer

I'm drawn to content creators, curators, and entrepreneurs who love taking calculated risks. I enjoy solving business problems with creativity informed by research and collaboration. And as a lifelong bibliophile and poet, I've always been enamored by the richness of language and the power of images.

As Principal and Lead Designer at Metagramme, I bring a clear understanding of how strategy shapes communication and design systems. I work directly with Metagramme’s clients on all projects from start to finish. I have an intuitive ability to orchestrate graphic identities across all mediums, and my attention to detail is a hallmark of Metagramme’s work. These skills poises our clients for growth and market equity, through consistent yet nuanced brand expressions.
