I’m a communicator.


Low poly selfieI’ve worked as a journalist, a photographer, a community organizer, a social media manager, and a political communications/campaign specialist, but my purpose throughout my career has been the same: to help people understand things that matter to them.

Just like tone and body language are a big part of what we perceive in conversation, design is a big part of how we understand what we see. I want to use design to educate, persuade, and excite.
