I’m a CA-bred, Boston-based designer.
Originally from Santa Cruz, CA, I got my start at a skateboarding company in 2000. I was cutting rubies and digitizing pen & ink artwork for our in-house illustrators’ board graphics when they asked me to design and produce my own t-shirts, boards, catalogs and magazine ads for their 12 famous brands. Seven years later I swapped action sports for tech, and won some awards working for small studios and marketing departments on everything from logos to print, email campaigns and digital media, to events and full-scale branding.
Since moving to the east coast in winter 2012 (brr!) I've led 3 teams of designers — client- and agency-side — across online media, advertising, finance and consumer apps. Today I co-lead brand and creative at Circle with a team of 8 across London and NYC. My recent experience is with startups during extreme growth, where teams move quickly, creatives manage their own projects, and the brand is always evolving. I’ve learned from great copywriters, UX architects, artists, motion designers, developers and creative directors along the way to build experiences that don't just check a box, but make a lasting impact. 
My drive is to mix concept, craft and context into beautiful constructs with meaning, and I jump at any opportunity to be hands-on with my team. I live just north of the city with my fiancé and furbabies, Luda and Eazy.
