From relationships to brand experiences.
Download my resume or visit Linkedin for the short 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 where I got my first taste of experiential design. I caught wind of an opportunity with LPK to work in their international office in Frankfurt, Germany, which ultimately I couldn't resist. I joined LPK and loved diving into brand strategy, having the fortune to work with some of the world's most recognizable brands, but packaging didn't excite me the way experiential design does. I love that experiential design leverages so many different mediums, practices, and the diversity and complexity of the business problems.
I boomeranged, returning to Kolar while in Frankfurt, as an international extension of the firm. I gained a strong foundation in creating brand experiences and established myself as a respected creative leader. However, after living abroad for eight years, I was craving a design community. 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—and delivering branding experiences for a specific online retailer at an unprecedented scale. :)
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. It is an honor to actively contribute to, support, and grow this community as a member of the Board of Directors.
You'll find me continually exploring the world through travel, food, art, and books.
