BACKGROUND & EXPERIENCE

I have enjoyed a diverse career in design, gaining experience in branding, graphic design, and architectural interiors. My work has included collaboration with a variety of clients in the private and public sectors – ranging from the corporate world to civic and academic projects, among other industries.

A childhood interest in architecture led me to pursue a career designing built environments. I have been fortunate to work on award-winning projects, partnering with talented multi-disciplinary teams. Along the way, my interests and project responsibilities came to include 2D elements – graphic design and brand development.

I have worked within design firms and in-house creative teams, as well as operated as an independent designer. In each instance, I have gained invaluable experience leading projects of all sizes toward success. With the benefit of this well-rounded background, I am able to bring an holistic perspective to projects that strengthens the work I do for each client.

Regardless of the setting or the design challenge, my approach is consistent: to work in a collaborative and thoughtful way, listening to the needs of my client to develop creative solutions that they love.

(LITTLE) KNOWN FACTS

I have a woefully neglected blog.

My favorite D.C. area museums are the Hirshhorn Museum, National Gallery of Art (East or West Wing, depending on my mood), and the National Museum of African American History & Culture (thoughtful architecture and engaging exhibits).

I am currently based in historic Alexandria, Virginia. And, despite being a native of Colorado, I am unabashedly ignorant about downhill skiing.
