I'm a design leader who cares about increasing access to information, benefits, connection and opportunity.

I have 14 years of experience working with startups, design studios, non-profits, government agencies, educational institutions, international organizations. I was fortunate to amplify my design practice and network through MICA’s BFA in Graphic Design and SVA’s MFA in Interaction Design.

Recent work

I have expertise leading work that can be categorized as:
  • government benefits for people (or, business to consumer)
  • large internal platforms for government executives and staff (or, business to business)
  • research to uncover and identify market opportunities for business growth

  • 🍁 State of Vermont’s Agency of Human Services
  • 🏥 Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services

I’m proud to have volunteered with Inneract Project, where through research, my team created the framework of a new entreprenurial design curriculum with staff and students.
