I've been a designer (of just about every flavor) for over 20 years. The fascination continues to grow; I love the science behind the aesthetics, overt and subtle communication challenges, the philosophy and social behavior theories behind the identity and marketing strategies, and the research involved in understanding the messenger and recipient. My superpower is recognizing whole-system patterns, and either altering those patterns to better suit intended communication, or aligning product and messaging more with those existing patterns to build demographic trust. Because my brain works top down, I gravitate toward solving branding and identity problems, but I also thoroughly enjoy illustration, data visualization, infographics, both analog and digital page layout (catalogs, look-books, websites), environmental design, packaging, and working with photographers on product shoots. And of course I believe in working with companies whose messages and products I believe in wholeheartedly, which for me means the health, wellness, and outdoor industries.

When I'm not in front of a computer you can usually find me far up a mountain or a pitch of rock; even better if combined with foraging and/or travel. I have been teaching and co-chairing for the Washington Alpine Club since 2015 and it is a true labor of love. I'm a 200hr certified yoga teacher, have completed the AIGA Single Pitch Guide course and expect to test in 2021, and I'm working towards an Institute for Functional Medicine Health Coach Certification and AIP Coach Certification to support AIP retreats, giving people diagnosed with autoimmunity the tools and start they need for their journey.
