I specialize in leading design teams to create usable and memorable experiences that transcend boundaries.

Since 2006, I’ve worked across a broad range of sectors; I’ve executed designs for start-ups, non-profits, small businesses, beauty lines, architecture and design agencies, universities, restaurants, hotels, authors, and wealth management firms, to name a few. 

I still feel honored when I think of the talented groups of people I’ve worked with over the years.
