With seven years of dedicated experience in graphic design and three years specializing in agile UX|UI, I bring a wealth of knowledge and a passion for visually communicating the essence of companies, institutions, and organizations. My adaptive approach caters to the unique requirements of each project, consistently upholding brand aesthetics with contemporary, intelligent, and sleek design. 

My work often takes the form of promotional materials for marketing purposes, presentation decks, and intuitive websites and mobile apps. I enjoy establishing new branding as well as adhering to established design systems, envisioning creative ways to elevate them when possible. 

I take the time to understand the core audience and business needs I’m designing for, and enjoy presenting my ideas to stakeholders and collaborating with those outside my department. I am a kind and thoughtful communicator, and my education and professional experience has trained me to benefit from criticism as part of the collaborative process. I have keen design intuition, and have become adept at producing work efficiently. My experience with exhibits and web design has especially honed my user-psychology mindset. I uphold a high quality bar, creating elegant, simple solutions to multi-faceted problems. I am excited to create, and explore visual design ideas.

In my most recent experience I’ve been working as an independent contractor, primarily designing websites. I’m also currently the Assistant Manager for a gallery in town, which has included creating social media graphics and promotional posters, and keeping track of data for contributing gallery artists. Prior to this, I’ve worked as a Design Associate and UX|UI Designer assisting in creating a digital-first education platform for the Read180 Division at Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. I’ve also served as a UX Designer at Open Exchange, as the Graphic Designer for Chabot Space & Science Center in Oakland, California, and as the San Francisco Graphic Designer for Woods Bagot, an international architecture firm. In these positions I’ve helped to elevate these companies with measurable results. I’ve had the pleasure and responsibility of serving as the sole designer in several of these positions.

Prior to graphics, I enjoyed working as a junior architect for several years in high-end residential as well as interior architecture and design. I graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design in 2007, having earned an industry-accredited Bachelor of Architecture and a Bachelor of Fine Arts. While a successful building encourages visitors to explore, a well-designed graphic or website inspires navigation—in a thoughtful, structured, elegant, and sometimes playful way. I find architectural design and graphics both deeply gratifying.

I’ve taken continuing education courses in graphic design at the Academy of Art, San Francisco, and University of California, Berkeley to further my knowledge. While attending courses, I transitioned to graphics through internships and contract positions in San Francisco, providing a diverse understanding of the field. I’ve also enjoyed coming up with personal projects on subjects that interest me, some of which you can view here on my site under Spotify Redesign, Roast Coffee, and Astro Photo.

I’m currently based in the White Mountains of New Hampshire, and have enjoyed working remotely. I find that excellent communication has allowed me to feel well-integrated with a team. When not designing for graphics and web, I enjoy walks at dawn with my dog, and hiking in the surrounding mountains. You can view my personal artwork here: Coffee Break.

Thank you for taking an interest in my work!
