I’m a multidisciplinary designer and design team leader. I believe in balancing form with function, and in leading with curiosity and heart. To me, design is a tool that should be used for good.
Currently, I’m the visual design supervisor at 18F, where I design user-centered digital products that make the US government work better for the people it serves.
In addition to visual experience design, I’ve worked across product and service design, strategy, and creative services management for clients spanning governments, foundations, international organizations, and nonprofits.
In past lives, I was a seasoned clambaker who served lobster and clam chowder to former US presidents, a counselor and riding instructor at a children's equestrian camp, and a floral design assistant specializing in weddings.
