Wow, you seem great!
Here's a little more about me.
With 6+ years in the mission-driven agency world, I've partnered with companies to advance causes like civil rights, clean energy, literacy, and safe sex. I’ve honed my design and branding skills and worked on a variety of mediums, but I’m most passionate about bringing brands to life through digital products and experiences.
I'm a traveler, an antiquer, and a salsa dancer. An environmentalist to the core, I'm a huge advocate of the circular economy and living a zero-waste lifestyle. I stay motivated both personally and professionally by pushing my comfort zone and staying curious. Most recently, I traveled solo through South America for 3 months to brush up on my Spanish. I can't say I'm fluent, but I sure learned a lot about communication, confidence, and really long bus rides.
Life is complicated. Design shouldn't be. Good design makes things simpler, more helpful, and more beautiful.
In this time of bountiful (aka: endless) information, successful design is all about finding information easily and connecting to a story. The best way to build a delightful, compelling experience is through collaboration, iteration, and transparency in all steps of the process. Design decisions should be based on data, research, ethics, and a certain amount of intuition. It's also important to balance big-picture thinking with quick prototyping and an acute attention to detail.

Sometimes that's a print piece—ads, brochures, posters, packaging, or signage—and often times it's a website refresh with an updated brand, an engaging visual language, and an intuitive user experience. Those are my favorite types of projects, so I concentrate my work on digital experiences, including:
