a bit about me
I create brands. I develop websites. I love strategic design. Most of all, I love to collaborate.
My career has been a 25-year journey through the world of communications and graphic design. I’ve loved design ever since I cracked open my first Art History textbook in college. Fittingly, my first job was at a museum, where I wrote grants and produced publications in support of large annual and capital fundraising campaigns. I then moved on to consulting for a celebrated national art collection in Prague, launching their first-ever membership program at a castle. Back in the U.S. I marketed classics and new literature for a high-profile American book publisher in New York. I embraced my lifelong passion for music and dance as head of communications for a Manhattan concert hall and performing arts center. These experiences sparked a longing to explore the creative aspects of how communications and design can be used to reinforce missions.
As a designer, I use all of my cumulative experience, insights and creativity to help each client tell their story, and to invite others to support them, buy goods or participate in their vision.
