About Me

As a creative professional, problem solver, and advocate for several causes, I help good brands make a greater impact through visual design.

WEconnect's Employee of the Month

Elected April 2020 & June 2020

Honorable mention, September 2020

Each month, WEconnect asks staff to nominate someone who's been displaying the company's core values.

The person with the most nominations is elected that month's "Appreciation Winner" and praised at our all-company meeting.

I was honored to have received this award once and humbled to have received it a second time as I've only ever seen this happen one other time.
Personal Statement

I enjoy few activities more than getting lost in creative work.

I've designed my life around doing what I love. At the center of this wonderful way of existing is a career focused on my strengths:

creative problem solving • organizing complex information • elevating visual aesthetics

My Specialty

responsive web design

While I'm best at creating impactful websites, I also enjoy the variety of working across print and digital.

My Experience

Freelance + in-house

In 2016, I began freelancing as a web designer. Then in 2018, I accepted my first in-house design position.

My Homebase

Seattle, working remote

Originally from the SF Bay Area, I now live in Seattle where I appreciate that I can work from home.
