I was more a writer than an artist as a kid. I have limited sketching skills and my fifth-grade sculpture of a clown fish and sea anemone won no awards. But as an adult, I discovered I could manipulate pixels as a graphic designer. Discovering I could make beautiful, engaging messages set me on a path to doing the things I love. A few years ago, I began working in user-centered design and content strategy. To learn more about my professional pursuits, check out the Services page.
