Skillsets are important.
I’m a proud polymath.

Throughout my 16-year career as a designer, strategist, and technology evangelist, I have had the privilege of creating emotionally impactful experiences for hundreds of brands across a variety of industries—solving complex business challenges. I thrive in smart tech-forward environments that highly value cross-collaboration and strategic thinking.

Design

Design is my core competency while strategy and technology greatly influence my work.  With each project, I look for ways to push the boundaries of design and technology, approaching each deliverable with a proactive mindset.

Strategy

SVA’s Masters in Branding program taught me how to dig deep, and since then I have leveraged my strategy training to develop truly successful solutions that draw people in and challenge how we interact with new media.

Tech

Hacking WordPress sites taught me invaluable coding and tech skills. That knowledge guides every pixel pushed and is the foundation for how I lead clients and design teams to develop conceptual yet doable tech experiences.

Business

Owning a business and working for start-ups helped my transition into leadership roles at large agencies. Key to that success is understanding core needs, communicating expectations, and having strong boundaries.

Leadership

I define strong leadership as the ability to define expectations vs reality efficiently and empathetically. Creativity flows when the team understands the what and why to deliver without endless late nights.

Mentorship

Since 2021, I have volunteered my time to mentor creatives worldwide via ADPList. I have an immense passion to demystify the creative industry for professionals in the first 10 years of their careers.

Awards &
Engagements.

Sometimes I submit stuff and talk shop in public.

Getting up to speak in front of peers and submitting work to creative shows have capped periods of immense personal growth, embracing that vulnerability has paid off and I’ve loved every minute.

Last Speaking Engagement

In April 2022, I hosted a group session on ADPList.org entitled “De-Mystifying the Creative Hiring Process.” The session was a resounding success with 135 RSVP’s and over 50 live chat participants during the 90-minute session where I spoke about how hiring in different types of agencies works — including topics like industry, business type, role type, location, specialists vs generalists, competition and bias.

I love really good coffee and bicycles.

Currently, I’m based in Portland, Oregon, and an Associate Creative Director at Owen Jones where I lead the digital experience design team. My virtual door is always open for a chat, mentor session, speaking engagement, or general venting.
