Thinker, do-er, way-too-much coffee drinker. Thought designer, art director, super-awesome woman leader.
I am a designer and I care about education, women leadership, and connecting with people. People inspire me and I keep them at the core of my practice. Growing up online has shown me that the networks we build in person and on the internet are the sole driving force of true impact, creative ideas, and the need for GIFs.
Currently working as a freelance art director, I’ve previously worked as a creative director at a small package design company and both assisted and led social media campaigns, traditional fundraisers, brand identity systems, and marketing campaigns.
While not working, I’m involved in the AIGA Chicago Mentorship program, ISH (Illustration Society Here), and student mentoring via Flashpoint Chicago. I go to panels, talks, and try to get coffee with every cool person I know.
I do other things besides design, such as:
Playing with my dog
Hand lettering interesting phrases
Woodburning plaques and cutting boards
Cooking with said cutting boards
Plotting how my next apartment will be decorated
Shaving my head for charity
