About

I am currently interested in opportunities where I can use design to partner with others who seek to positively impact people’s lives. Let’s talk!
My resume can be downloaded here.
I have A head for design and a heart for others.
I offer clients 15 years of experience in design and marketing. As a creative and a leader, I create pathways for personal and community transformation, and I partner with those working to transform our world into something better and more just.
I shine when it comes to branding while maintaining a high level of technical precision and prowess. I create engaging work full of personality and happiness.
My work is user-centered, but always rooted in design thinking and best practice.
My bright and diverse portfolio includes work from the The Wright Museum in Detroit, Cybernet Medical, Trenton Makes-Words!, Eden Foods, and PawCulture and showcases my serious skills for designing for the web. At Pet360 Inc, I bring my creative and adept leadership within the Creative Team during hiring, managing and communicating with contract, remote, and junior designers. I designed the brand and launched the website PawCulture, a pet resource written for today's pet parents.​​​​​​​

Philadelphia Magic Gardens and XOXO from Philly

I have worked as digital designer for New Jersey Fitness and Wellness and web designer and social media strategist for Eden Foods (an organic food company based in Michigan). I also worked at Cybernet Systems Corporation, a small business that specializes in robotic solutions. As Cybernet’s graphic designer and media developer, I did everything from print design to tradeshow booth design, 3-D modeling to photography, plus web design.
I build and commit to relationships over the long haul.
I am relationally-driven with authentic people-skills. I am an active team leader. I motivate junior designers to engage with each other and to grow as designers and creatives by offering clear and consistent feedback and spaces in which all voices are listened to.
