As a multidisciplinary designer, I direct, lead, manage, collaborate, design and strategize on creative and design projects. My strengths lie in finding creative ways to solve problems, connect people, and tell visual stories. I especially love collaborating with clients in the areas of sustainability, systems design, urban design, architecture, arts, culture, dance, theater, music, film and education.

Eternal optimist. Creator. Collaborator. Idea generator. Problem solver. Insatiably curious. People person. Eager learner. Adventure traveler. Sporty. Dance nut. Playful. Prankster (watch out!). Citizen of the world. Driven to make this world a better place to live.

I've played roles in creative direction, design management, art direction, project management, and design. My perspective is global and I've lived in the U.S., Canada (live in Montreal currently), Pakistan, France, UK and Germany, and am bilingual (English and French). I speak some Spanish (si) and German (ja, klar) and am a citizen of both the U.S. and E.U. Read Less

I'm currently doing graduate work at the Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM) with a focus on environments, urban design and innovative co-design processes. My thesis is "action research" and I'm exploring different co-design methods for urban design projects, which involve more collaboration between the city, academia, private sector and citizens. My ultimate goal is to create more sustainable and healthier cities for the future.

I'm a sponge for all things creative and design, am fascinated by cultural differences, have an insatiable curiosity, am passionate about sustainability and projects with a positive mission, have grown addicted to TED conferences, love killer sarcasm and live improv, am an avid reader of Metropolis Magazine, Treehugger, and Fast Company, do yoga regularly, bow down to the creative genius of Dr. Seuss, sometimes doodle in meetings (FYI, I am in fact listening), have been known to perform Indian dance on stage, have a backhand on the court that isn't too shabby, and have been given many nicknames (CK1, Green Queen, Steenie...).
