The Full Story

Oh, hello again! ​

My creativity is channeled through many outlets, but imposter syndrome keeps me from sharing most ideas. Working through that in this current season of life because it's time. I like to draw, create, learn and re-read things that I've read in my spare time --The Alchemist is always at the top of that list. Four months out of the year I live on a soccer field serving as a coach and commissioner, and I love it. Philanthropic work has anchored much of my imprint in the world which also led to the co-founding of a nonprofit with my cousins. While I do enjoy traveling, I mostly appreciate the comfort of my own home. My kids keep me busy, my husband keeps me grounded and I write often to keep harmony in my life. My website changes depending on where I am in my life and right now the moment is "under construction" vibes. If I go too crazy with color I am inspired by a new color the next day, so I save my most colorful ideas for clients. Depending on the project, my creative interest varies. Digitally, my favorite tasks are writing and/or editing existing content. I love to take what already exists and tweak, making small adjustments that can have a big impact. When I am collaborating in physical spaces, I do enjoy interaction and motion-focused tasks. As for my design philosophy: "What else can I take away?" is an approach inspired by T. Robert Roeth's The Axe: An object lesson in design.

For a decade, my w2 consisted of nonprofit and educational work. Work that planted seeds of community, cross-functional collaboration, partnership, scholarship, and data-driven metrics. Those are the seeds and spaces that crafted my professional identity, and further emphasized my commitment to philanthropy. I have always loved the opportunity to learn new things, impart wisdom and to give back through my work, however... I have always been a creative first. Within each of those formal spaces, I craved and sought out projects that allowed me to (re)organize info, flow, or function. It was never enough to simply complete the given task, I wanted a broader impact. Outside of those formal spaces, I freelanced whatever creative design projects I could land - planning, designing, drawing, writing. Basically, I spent my time chasing ways to enhance "how people experienced things." Clueless that an entire industry existed, specifically for what I was chasing, in 2021 I stumbled across Google's UX design program. Moving through the program was the first time I felt creatively understood. I've since found acquaintance in html, css, and javascript (this one's a bit moody). I am learning & growing in all forms of expression but a while ago I found my creative love language and now, I'll never look back.
