I solve problems with divergent thinking, design, and creativity, crafting experiences and products with inherent goals of utility and longevity. I tell stories and build brands with pixels, code, ink, paper, pencil, letters, and sometimes sound. With a penchant for teaching, I lead teams of designers, creatives, strategists, and researchers, exploring and fostering their curiosities, while effectively maneuvering between roles as leader, collaborator, mentor, and student.
My career originated in the interactive and digital space and has consistently expanded to include design and creative leadership, design thinking, brand design and strategy, interaction and experience design, UX/UI design, digital product design, art direction, data visualization, digital strategy, app design, advertising, and graphic arts. I’ve led and collaborated with talented teams of designers, art directors, producers, and strategists to create visually and emotionally engaging content, products, stories, and interactive experiences.
I have created experiences, digital products, and told stories for a wealth of diverse companies, organizations, and government agencies, including Hewlett-Packard, Michael Kors, Eli Lilly, Ketchum, The Glover Park Group, mustr, United Healthcare, FedEx, Time Warner, Chase, MiO, Best Buy, Doubletree, Hershey’s, USDA, USAID, Save Darfur Coalition, Climate Leadership Initiative, APCIA, and UNICEF.
