I’ve worn many over the years: visual designer, content strategist, UX specialist—but my focus has always been consistent: delivering user-centered design solutions that connect people and brands. 

My process is rooted in collaboration and genuine curiosity for what makes people—and businesses—tick. My passion is for design from every angle, strategy through execution.

I’ve got 15+ years of experience designing at large organizations, startups and agencies including Udacity, Sony Music, and Bloomberg. I thrive in simplifying complex challenges for cross-functional teams.

On a typical workday you’ll find me designing screens in Figma, studying heatmaps in Hotjar or writing CSS snippets in a text editor. I’m a scrappy, hands-on designer with the right range of skills to get the big (and little things) done.

After decades in NYC, I’m now based in Southern California where I enjoy close proximity to the beach and miss corner slice shops.

I’m available for new projects!  Reach out to discuss how I can help your team or business.
