A highly versatile multi-disciplinary designer / art director with an emphasis on user-centered design.
My aim as a designer is to help others address complex challenges by leveraging contextual/observational research, and by leading design teams in translating that research from insights to actionable design that drives change and creates new opportunities.
This user-centered approach has been highly influential to me, and one that I believe is critical to breaking new ground.

I have over 14 years of design experience across a broad range of projects, clients, and industries.
My range of work and experience all stem from my ongoing curiosity.
I’m equally passionate about process and execution, and I’m always motivated by the pursuit of new problems, and bringing together the right tools, technology, or people to design new realities. I pursue design with a wholistic perspective, and enjoy tackling all aspects of design in creating compelling solutions and experiences in any medium.
But, most importantly, I see myself as a human-centered designer; starting with supporting and encouraging the people I work with.
