I love puzzles and people, which is what makes design fun: empathetic problem solving for visual solutions that delight both the speaker and the viewer.

Whether by tablet or canvas, creating visual stories has been a part of my life since I can remember. In fact, my first steps in life were toward  freshly open can of wall paint.

Who doesn't want to see their designs come to life? Adding motion to design gives an extra element of delight and life, letting you get to know the personalities of a character or leading the eye to an element you may not have otherwise noticed.

Capturing a moment in time is magical, whether it be curated and planned or designed through nature over centuries. I began by shooting weddings and events and evolved to focus on nature and people for fashion, beauty, travel, health, and music industries and also purely for artistic exploration.

When you care about something, you name it. You buy it a soft bed. When you create or support a product, you do the same. I'm here to help you make sure that thing you love stands out and makes a name for itself with the same care and intent you had when bringing it into existence.

Form and function with a cherry on top. I enjoy creating products that not only inform, but that also delight. A success to me is a website or application designed with the use of empathy and testing that is pleasing to both view and to use. 

 

I have led design projects as part of in office teams, a contracted consultant, and independently for my own business with employees and collaborators. I believe that a unified and organized vision paired with a variety of talented professionals is a recipe for magic.

My specialty isn’t one subset of design, but the empathy and intuition needed to effectively meet and exceed the objective of each project. Each partner is as individual as the aspirations of the project we work on together. Listening, researching, communicating and collaborating are as valuable as technical know-how, and it is always my hope that this is clear in my design solutions.
