Hi there! I’m a brand therapist, illustrator, and full-stack visual designer in the San Francisco Bay area. Over the last ten years, I’ve been fortunate enough to work with mission-driven start-ups and non-profits to deepen people’s quality of life through design.
I started my career at a tech incubator called Life Labs that focused on promoting universal design to enrich the lives of people with disabilities. As the first design hire, I lead creative direction, UI/UX, print design, and managed design projects. In three months, we went from having only a logo and a blog to owning a fully launched website. In six months, we hosted a fully branded Hackathon event at Google D.C.
Since then, I’ve worked at a boutique design agency to strengthen my design chops, then spent two years at Common Sense Media — where I lead design on campaigns to stop cyberbullying with AT&T, designed for social campaigns to promote “For Kids” laws in the California State Legislature, and created social awareness campaign on raising media-savvy kids with the American Pediatric Association. Recently I worked with the Center for Humane Technology on their Ledger of Harms as one of their earliest volunteer and UI/UX designer.
What tickles me are designs that reverberate with impact that depends on centering on the epicenter of an organization’s roots and mission. I delight in finding exactly that for my clients, all else follows.
Organizations I’ve had the pleasure of working with:
