As an award-winning designer,* I delight in integrating typography with imagery and playing with the geometry of the letterform. I am skilled in conveying complex content in a manner that is engaging, readily understandable, and memorable. I love discovering ideas with my clients, understanding their motivations, and guiding them toward design solutions that satisfy their business needs.

As a design manager, I am motivated to chaperone my colleagues through challenges in their work. I create and retool processes and systems to improve schedules and budget planning, and smooth communication between design, editorial, and production teams and clients. Incorporating my experience as a trained diversity and inclusion advocate with my active listening and connecting conversational skills, I help my colleagues navigate conflict and achieve resolution through dialogue, mediation, and mentorship.

*I’ve received numerous awards for professional trade publication design from Publishing Professionals Network, Bookbuilders West, and Benjamin Franklin Awards.
