From relationships to brand experiences.
Download my resume or visit Linkedin for the succinct version.
I love building things - from relationships to brand experiences. I am a big picture visionary who will work side by side with the team to achieve outstanding results. I understand the constant finesse it takes to cultivate team culture while ensuring that it aligns with the company's strategic goals, drives profitability, and remains fun. I am inspired by solving problems and delivering fantastic creative.
After graduating from DAAP, I joined Kolar. While there, I caught wind of an opportunity with LPK to work in their international office in Frankfurt, Germany, which I couldn't resist. I joined LPK and loved diving into brand strategy for some of the world's most recognizable brands, but the medium of packaging wasn't fulfilling enough. After a few years away from experiential design, I realized that is what I really wanted to be doing. I loved that experiential design leveraged so many different mediums and the innate diversity and complexity of the business problems to be solved.
I (re)joined Kolar while in Frankfurt, as an international extension of the firm, where I gained a strong foundation in creating brand experiences and established myself as a respected creative leader. After living abroad for eight years, I was craving a design community to connect with and become a part of. This desire brought me stateside to IA Interior Architects in Seattle, Washington. I spent six years at IA, building a practice that I am incredibly proud of-providing creative direction, and mentorship, to global teams and building experiences hand in hand for Fortune 500 clients.
When I moved to Seattle, it was vital for me to embed myself in the design community, so I joined the Society for Experiential Graphic Design (SEGD) as a chapter chair. I am honored to be able to actively contribute to, support, and build the local design community. At the beginning of this year, I was nominated to serve on the SEGD Board of Directors.
While Seattle, WA is currently home, I am continually exploring the world through travel, food, art, and books. Whether building a brand, an experience, or a practice, I have found that my heart is most full when I can build consensus and ultimately new ideas.
