About

For more than 25 years, I have specialized in meeting customers’ design needs with creativity, innovation and business savvy. From inception to completion, from visual to experience design, I have tried to impart value in every corner of the communications and design field.

Bringing design solutions and design thinking, with passion and empathy, to problems organizations face continues to drive and excite me.

Now after years of design, collaboration, and leading creative teams I am also looking to bring the experience and skills I have gained over the years to teaching the next generation of designers and problem solvers.

One of the most important pieces of wisdom gained throughout my career is finding solutions to today's problems not only need creative ideas but it is just as important, if not more, that those ideas are managed well. Through empathy and research, exploration and experimentation, prototyping and diffusion, projects can be managed to have a greater chance for success.

Strengths include design leadership, strategic thinking, research, facilitating creative teams, experience design, brand development and implementation, marketing management, and design excellence.
