I’m a designer and illustrator from San Francisco, CA, now living in Seattle, WA. I focus on creating new and engaging brand experiences. My work is centered around user research and human-centered design thinking. I enjoy working within visual design, product/digital, packaging, and brand and marketing development. I’m always interested in expanding my knowledge of design research roles and their integration into the design process.
My current position at LeanIn.Org and OptionB.Org has allowed me to pursue branding for new and/or developing organizations. I truly enjoy the challenge of creating a brand that reflects the organization’s core purpose and identity while also incorporating their first few years of growth
In my spare time, I find inspiration in the outdoors, through illustration, and while experimenting with printmaking.
