Over 10 years designing for web, mobile, and multimedia, I thrive on leveraging technology and collaboration to build innovative products and ideas. Specialties include visual communication, UX, and marketing for publishers, nonprofits, and companies featured below. I'm a Master of Fine Arts in Design & Technology from The New School in NY.
Senior Marketing Designer for Summer Search, helping bridge the gap for low-income high school students to become college-educated leaders.
Design & Web Manager for Playworks, providing safe, inclusive play to low-income urban schools.
Creative Producer, CorpComm Technology, for the publisher of some of the world's most celebrated mass media brands, including Vogue, GQ, Wired, Vanity Fair, and The New Yorker. Condé Nast attracts more than 164M consumers across its print and digital media.
Managed intranet (serving 5K employees) with daily posts of my design, facilitating communications across 30 brands. The following example shows our redesigned homepage navigation, after a collaborative effort, in which I conducted user research, created UI, digital assets, and design decisions.
I believe in fearless creativity, emergent technologies, and problem-solving with style and form. I used to be a magazine art director before moving to NY for an MFA, becoming more focused on digital and mobile UX and design.
The full-residency, two-year MFADT is studio based, but critical thinking and study of the design process are central.
