About / CV

I am a multi-disciplinary designer who loves to design / collaborate / consult on interesting projects across the design spectrum. This includes interactive experiences, digital products, physical spaces, print, web and most especially where those places meet. The design skill set I draw from allows me to research & strategize at a high level and also get into the nitty-gritty details of the finished work.

My professional history includes 11+ years practicing design with an emphasis on graphic design, typography, interactive products, user experience, visual identities and visualizations. I have done work for individual scientists & small brands, large national clients and successful start-ups. My work has crossed a diverse collection of clients and industries - from healthcare, to music, science, cultural institutions, artificial intelligence, digital and physical products, print design & more.

In my personal life I am an avid cyclist, hiker, visual artist, creator and lover of music.
