I’m a California-bred, Boston-based brand designer & Creative Director at Circle. 
My most recent work/life has been at startups and during extreme growth where speed-to-market means a balance of creative chops and strategic problem solving. Along the way, I’ve partnered with UX architects, copywriters, motion designers and developers to build experiences for customer connection, product engagement, and strong brand positioning. 

I grew up in Santa Cruz, CA and got my start as a designer at its big skateboarding company, NHS, in 2000. I was cutting rubies and digitizing pen & ink artwork for our illustrators’ board graphics when they asked me to design and produce my own t-shirts, headwear, boards, as well as100-page catalogs and skate/snow/surf magazine ads for their 12 global brands. After another 3 years as design lead at Fox Racing Shox, I swapped action sports for tech, won some design awards working for small studios, and was lucky to create everything from digital ad campaigns and sites to events and full-scale branding.

Since moving to the east coast in 2012, I've led a few design teams, client- and agency-side, across online media (Brightcove), consumer advertising (Digitas), finance (Circle and Bank of America) and consumer apps (Circle Pay and Circle Invest). Circle has been a journey over the past 5 years — in May 2020, I rebranded the company for its new platform and am starting to build a whole new team (we're hiring!).

I live just north of Boston with my husband and furbabies Ripley, Luda and Eazy. Grab my resume.​​​​​​​
