Work History

My passion is to help create design solutions that are meaningful and relevant to people. I truly feel that a human centered process is the key to coming up with meaningful and successful products or services. My strong skill set for uncovering people's needs and desires always leads to actionable opportunities for design. I know how to tell compelling stories that profoundly inspire design solutions that entail not only a human perspective but also incorporate broad cultural influences and ever changing market trends.
