what’s lighting me up
Here the status quo is challenged to think strategically about visual innovation while defining and maintaining visual standards. Understanding the culture around us helps inform the work and to create communications that connect. Being part of the design community, marketing, culture at large keeps our pulse on what’s next. What’s now. And what it can be.

Experience

I am an award-winning multi-disciplinary senior creative with a focus on creating modern and engaging experiential marketing for the full brand experience. I believe in creating work that is intentional and strategic while also aesthetically strong and beautiful. I’m constantly asking “why” and “what if” as I’m a big-picture thinker able to capture the nuance of intricate details. I lead creative with superior communication skills and work with various stakeholders and clients throughout the entire process.

From design associations to museums, studios to agencies, from star-ups to educator, my years of experience has given me the opportunity to see many different sides of the design/marketing and sales process. I take with that the ability to understand what it takes to create a strong team, work with leadership, and mentor designers and team members to create amazing work that delivers.

My work expands multiple mediums that include print, interactive, environmental, packaging and surface design. I lead creative ideation, challenge the status quo, think strategically about visual innovation while defining and maintaining visual standards. I mentor and partner with other creatives and teams to help improve the visual process that includes maintaining visual consistency of a brand across all mediums. I continue to pursue quality and innovation while managing a team, budgets, and client relationships.

As a creative, some of my influences are rich and beautiful textiles, architecture, nature and interior environments. I am passionate about learning the cultural anthropology around us and find inspiration comes from anywhere, anyone and anything. I enjoy collaborating with other creatives to solve design challenges outside traditional thinking. My motto is “always keep your eyes and ears open and keep a curious mind”.
