I’m an artist and designer whose eclectic, analytical, problem-solving approach to design produces attention-grabbing, functional systems.

You can think of me as a Jane-of-all-trades. With experience in instructional design, video and animation, web design, and print, I can use the best media for any project.

A writer at heart, I process my thoughts pen-to-paper, creating connections with the broader world. My work draws from my interest in pop culture, social justice, public policy, and philosophy.

My vision for the future is of a society where we have individual freedom of self-expression while maintaining a collective responsibility to our planet and all the people in it.

I revel in the delight of removing wallpaper, battling fiends in Final Fantasy, laughing maniacally to crass novels, mowing dandelions, and eating chocolate cake. If you bump into me at the thrift store shopping for materials, be sure to say hi, or drop me a line.
