About - Holding

An NYC-based designer with management chops to boot.
I’m looking for what’s next.

Experience

I’ve worked across product and service design, strategy, communications design, design management, and creative services management for clients spanning governments, foundations, international organizations, and nonprofits. I like getting good at lots of things.

Most recently, I managed the visual design team at 18F, where I designed user-centered digital products that make the US government work better for the people it serves. My role had two primary tracks:

  • digital product design and agile software development coaching for other federal agencies,

  • building 18F’s visual design practice, including managing and hiring our visual experience designers.

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.
