I'm a freelance creative director and designer living in Minneapolis. If you are a design agency, I can free up your overloaded schedule by leading and managing projects, or add another mind to your creative brainstorms and strategic thinking. I can help establish and expand upon branding systems, manage or mentor young designers, or just be a pair of design hands as needed.
With 20 years experience under my belt, I've led brand experience projects that encompassed all touchpoints, from online to advertising, packaging, signage, environmental design and brand identity. Before going solo in 2016, I was design director for 5+ years at Tomorrow Partners in Berkeley, California. Previous to that, I freelanced around the Bay Area for 4 years and had the fortunate opportunity to design 13 books for Chronicle books.
Before moving to San Francisco, I spent seven years in Chicago’s design community, where I worked at VSA Partners, Designkitchen, and Modern Luxury (a regional magazine company).
