If there is one thing I don't like to talk about, it's myself. But here we go...
I am a visual storyteller interested in human-centered, socially responsible design. I live for projects where I can think beyond 'deliverables' and explore impact. I specialize in creative direction, graphic design, and branding. During my seven years of in-house and agency experience, I have focused on marketing, print design, web design, and brand development. Full disclosure: I have found that print and publishing are a passion of mine, and I love finding ways to incorporate physical artifacts into projects.
I am constantly growing my knowledge and skill base both professionally and in my day-to-day home life. I am sometimes maybe a little too proactive. I am both detail-oriented and constantly thinking about the bigger picture. I continue to challenge myself to improve skills, processes, and efficiencies.
I am not a real person in the mornings until I've had a cup of coffee (or two). I like to describe myself as a creative introvert. I am an INFJ to the core. My favorite genre is science fiction. My plant-parenting skills leave something to be desired, but my cat-parenting is pretty darn good. I am a weirdo, and I have given up trying to hide that about myself. I know who I am and I'm proud of where life has brought me so far.
Interested in working with me? Feel free to reach out.
Here's a high-level view of my past (design) experiences.
