and with a purpose.
My drive as a designer and as a maker is rooted in my passion for creating things that are useful—functionally, psychologically, and aesthetically—for people.
I believe that design is a tool and that good design can impact people and their well-being. To that end, I practice a user experience-driven approach to design, fueled by human-centered thinking, research, iteration, and feedback.
I also believe that truly innovative design develops in partnership with technology. I champion this relationship and enjoy exploring the opportunities that new technology offers for design challenges.
Currently I am an Art Director at blenderbox, a webby award winning interactive agency in Brooklyn, where I co-lead a visual design team within a highly collaborative environment of user experience designers, developers, producers and project managers. At blenderbox, we specialize in creating inspiring digital experiences, solutions, and tools for mission-driven organizations, cultural institutions, and non-profits.
When I am not designing I can usually be found with my nose in a book, exploring my ever-changing Brooklyn neighborhood, or on the hunt for a friendship bracelet large enough to fit all the way around my TV.
