Bio

A Midwestern gal at heart with big-city valor, I moved to NYC from Madison, WI in 2006 to work in the melting pot of all things creative. My previous experience with promoting bands, writing about DIY culture-makers and art directing photo shoots for the late and great quarterly <a style="color: #10b1a4;" href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Venus_Zine" target="_blank">Venus Zine,</a> led me to working with editors and stylists in the design industry. Companies like <a style="color: #10b1a4;" href="https://baggu.com/" target="_blank">BAGGU</a> + <a style="color: #10b1a4;" href="http://hableconstruction.com/hable-collection/" target="_blank">Hable Construction</a> created PR positions for me; I was promoted from Intern to Communications Director at <a style="color: #10b1a4;" href="http://www.aestheticmovement.com/" target="_blank">Aesthetic Movement</a>; and I collaborated with photo agents on branding and art direction at <a style="color: #10b1a4;" href="http://www.triciajoyce.com/" target="_blank">Tricia Joyce Inc.</a> In between, I work on social justice causes involving LGBTQ topics, youth empowerment and women's advocacy. <a style="color: #10b1a4;" href="http://williemaerockcamp.org/" target="_blank">(Willie Mae Rock Camp For Girls,</a> <a style="color: #10b1a4;" href="http://www.theheartradio.org/" target="_blank">The Heart)</a> The common thread linking these varied artistic mediums is my love of working with creative and passionate people from concept to execution — from designing curriculums on media literacy, art directing photo shoots to designing user-centered experiences.

A Midwestern gal at heart with big-city valor, I moved to New York City from Madison, Wisconsin in 2006 to work in the melting pot of all things creative. I did PR for boutique brands like BAGGU and Hable Construction; and art directed photo shoots for Bust and Venus Zine. Having worked closely with small companies with big hearts and missions, I wanted to find a way to bridge the gap between the brand and the user. I now specialize in UX and visual design.

In between, I work on social justice causes involving LGBTQ topics, youth empowerment and women's advocacy for organizations like the Willie Mae Rock Camp for Girls and The Heart. (Thanks to Briscoe Savoy for the photo.)
