I'm an empathetic, introspective, and curious
visual storyteller who’s obsessed with
image-making through typography.
My background is in branding, illustration, and print design, but I’m also known for my interdisciplinary passion projects. I’ve worked with ad agencies, design studios, and start-ups. Currently, I’m a freelance designer, and I collaborate with female-centric organizations such as The Cosmos, It's Not Personal, and Femme Mâché.
I frequently experiment with analog processes, and when I’m not getting my hands dirty, I can be found bingeing dim sum or vibing solo at a concert. I earned my BFA from the University of Michigan, and my work was featured in the Type Directors Club.
What collaborators & friends say
"I love your style of work. Your self-awareness, honesty, and life-loving approach to expressing yourself and your work inspires me, and I wanted to be a part of that. TWS was just a fortunate avenue to do so, and I felt that your voice was beautifully aligned with my hopes for how TWS would be perceived.
I appreciated your willingness to work with me and accommodate my requests, your push back when you felt strongly about your preferences and the way that you communicated so clearly about your timeline and expectations."
"I chose to work with you due to two primary reasons: A) I know you personally, and you're an incredibly talented, kind, engaging human being. B) Your work is top-notch, and I think it brings a level of humanity and personality to logo/title design that typically isn't found in an increasingly tech-driven world.
The several steps of experimentation and development were extremely helpful. Additionally, I felt like we were able to communicate clearly and without any of the unnecessary formalities that some people tend to hold close. I honestly just thought it was a great process."
"I truly enjoyed meeting you through our 100-day projects back in 2015. It’s amazing how we turned an Instagram follow into a real collaboration. I loved how you connected with the Hello Fears movement right away and felt compelled enough to work with me. I always dreamed of having my own merchandise line and this was the beginning of it! After our first meeting IRL you immediately got the concept of what I was going after and in no time, you presented me with twelve bold designs that turned a blurry idea into a tangible product.
I also loved how well you took my feedback and how fast you reworked your designs to fit my vision 100%. After a year of starting this project with you, I still love the result and even more, I love to share it with others who now use it as daily reminders to make courageous choices on their day today."
"I wanted to work with you because of your insatiable curiosity and eagerness to collaborate and learn. You delivered results that were on brand, clean, simple and straightforward. You helped us create a strong brand identity that speaks to our growing platform at It's Not Personal."
"You knew what I wanted and how you could help me get there. Anything that lets me use less mental power on design is a win for me, and that starts with a mutual understanding of the project goals. I felt that you were able to quickly contextualize the project and present a great deliverable without much effort on my part."
