I am a design leader with over 15 years experience creating digital products. I come from a background in visual design & branding, but my core strength is working in a hybrid visual-interaction role.

I have led design and branding efforts—as both a consultant and on in-house teams—over a wide range of products, including: wearables, mobile, medical, financial, enterprise, and consumer. My print experience includes magazine ads, environmental graphics, and book design.

I have experience managing clients, building teams, supporting development, and mentoring design staff. I also have teaching experience in a university environment.
