About

INSPIRED BY SIMPLICITY

Experience, Curiosity, Creativity, Precision, Enthusiasm — these are all qualities I cultivate and bring to my work.

I have over 15 years experience in the design world, working extensively with Interactive design (UI, UX) as well as print. I am a skilled art director and visual designer with true vision for clean design and knowledge of what works. I also have in-depth experience with audio and video production.

Clients I have worked with include large nonprofits such as PBS and NPR; international companies such as Pearson, Mercer, Schick, Kohler, Miller; artists such as grammy nominated musician Jai Uttal, and health and wellness clients such as the Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health.

I bring a love of beautiful, intuitive design and skillful precision to my work. I enjoy taking complex problems and translating them into simple solutions that connect with a user.

In addition to design and UX, I love to spend my time playing and studying music, hiking and traveling. So far I have spent time exploring India, Indonesia, Costa Rica, Switzerland and also love the idea of pretending to be a tourist in my own town (Currently Cambridge, Ma) so that I may see with fresh eyes (This is also a great quality to have as a UX/UI designer!) I am also a certified yoga teacher and enjoy studying all things related to health and nutrition.

GREAT DESIGN MATTERS.

I bring a love of beautiful, intuitive design and skillful precision to my work. I enjoy taking complex problems and translating them into simple solutions that connect with a user.
01. USER EXPERIENCE AND VISUAL DESIGN

For me user experience and visual design go hand and hand.

02. BRANDING

Clients I have worked with include Pearson, NPR, Mercer, PBS, Pfizer, Schick, Kohler, Miller and many more. I have helped develop brand standards and documentation where none existed as well as come into projects with very strict brand standards.

03. COMMUNICATION

Communication is one of the most important aspects of this work. How clearly are we communicating to the user? How are we communicating as a team? I have the ability to work independently as well as easily collaborate with a larger team. I also have several years experience working with remote teams based in India and Sri Lanka.

04. Additional Experience:
Photography, Film & Video

I have a BFA in inter-disciplinary arts focusing on music composition, film & video, graphic design and photography. Throughout my career I have drawn upon these skills. I am constantly working on creative projects, both personal and professional as for me the creative process is true nourishment.
