About Me

Hello! I’m a creative professional with graphic design, writing, and research expertise. My experiences in the worlds of design, public programming, exhibitions, and art education equip me with a unique collection of skills and a valuable lens in which to view your next project.

When I’m not bringing life to creative ideas, you might find me checking out a gigantic stack of books at the library with my daughter, cooking up something delectable in the kitchen, or exploring sweet home Chicago.
