So, Who am I exactly?
I'm a well versed Professional Designer, Developer, Art Director, and Creative strategist and Production Artist with foundations in Fine Art, several Design specialties, and Technology. I'm a born and raised East Coast girl, and even though I lived in the Pacific Northwest for 11 years, and now Colorado I still maintain my Mid-Atlantic roots.
I'm a true "Jackie of All Trades", and my unique set of skills makes me the perfect fit for any creative project or team. Design is always a collaboration, and part of my job is to make the process as easy to understand as possible regardless of your background or budget. We will always be a team.
I'm proud to have worked on projects for some of the biggest brands in Tech, Finance, Retail, and Entertainment. Whether its a multi billion dollar company, solo operation, or non-profit, no project or budget is too small or too complex. Design is a foundation of everything we do, and my work is always functional, beautiful, and ethical.
When I'm not working, I'm running two large groupd for podcasters of color, collecting action figures and vinyl records, and showing up on the occasional podcast to tell stories.
