Hello

I'm an experience and environments designer with a practice rooted in history, insight, and action. I have over 10 years of experience in human-centered research and design with a focus on:

Spatial Design:

  • Space planning
  • Lighting design
  • Wayfinding
  • Materials selection
  • Architectural representation

Storytelling:

  • Storyboarding
  • Video production
  • Graphic design
  • Interactive media production

My projects bridge worlds—physical and digital, public and private, theory and practice—from brand development for emerging businesses to supporting a multi-million dollar real estate project. In every project, I bring the same creativity, ingenuity, and thoroughness. A selected list of clients is below.

As a master’s candidate at Harvard’s Graduate School of Design, I worked alongside the metaLAB and the Harvard Art Museums designing the Lightbox Gallery, a venue for digital experiments and new media projects that respond to the Museum’s collections. That program accelerated the development of a social practice that enriches people’s experience of their everyday environment. 10 years prior I received a B.A. from Washington University in St. Louis in Social Design and History with a minor in Architecture.

I’m now focused on working alongside dedicated, passionate leaders in the experience and environments design arena; if that’s you, get in touch me here or on social media. I’d love to hear from you.
