I strive for the yay-my-teacher-just-assigned-an-art-project feeling when working with startups and nonprofits as they strategize websites, brand presence, and customer engagement. I work with small businesses and nonprofits who imagine solutions for the world’s environmental and social needs. I design with their concepts, ideas, and users in mind. When I figure out a better way to solve a problem, I cannot rest until it is implemented. I love design because it combines art and the written word, and communicates an infinite amount of ideas.

My diverse experiences enable me to collaborate with a variety of entreprenuers, including an all-women’s art college, an after-school mural program, a greenhouse-coffee shop, and a children’s historic playground. These experiences broadened my knowledge of education, hospitality, social justice, play advocacy, and community building.

In my freetime I perform improv comedy. Recently my sister and I started d’Odd Sister’s Press, where we illustrate funny greeting cards together. You can also find me bargain hunting at thrift stores, making my home cozy, or hanging out with my husband Jeff, our toddler Arthur, and our baby Annie.
