I work as a visual designer and art director specializing in higher education, nonprofits and small business. My visual art is my way of processing dharma, keeping my imagination vibrant and experimenting with the magic that is inherent in our existence. This site is a mix of my professional and personal work… The stuff that makes me the happiest and most complete.
Over the years, I have worked with many organizations including the University of Pennsylvania, Drexel University, Chestnut Hill College, Rutgers University, Temple University, Health Access California, YouthFarm, California Pan-Ethnic Health Network, CeaseFirePA, the Hagley Museum and Library, Student Diplomacy Corps, Caring People Alliance, Harbage Consulting and Strive Prep Charter Schools. Projects have ranged from comprehensive website design, to branding and identity, collateral for special events, to fundraising campaigns, and beyond.
My professional experience has ranged from 6+ years as a digitization librarian split between a major design firm and a university, 7+ years as an independent designer, 2 years branding a Chef, and post-baccalaureate training in fine arts.
I have a Master of Library Science degree with extensive training in archives, special collections, image handling, digitization, and management of visual collections. Prior to that, I learned to express myself visually as a contemplative practice while studying at Naropa University for my undergraduate degree.
I spend my free time painting, hiking, meditating and dancing, with a particular love of the 5Rhythms, a conscious movement practice that interweaves into all of my work and my life. I have 2 beautiful children and we live in the wooded Mount Airy section of Philadelphia.
And I love rock n roll. Nothing is better than a night out at a good show. Take a peek at who I’ve seen over the years!
