I'm an experience designer, artist, graphic designer, and writer. I tend to have several roles on projects, including concept development, research, client communications, copy writing, and aligning the end product with the project's purpose and goals.
I love combining visual art, storytelling, and participatory engagement to help challenge and change societal norms that cause us to disconnect with each other and the places we live . I'm particularly interested in vibrant neighborhoods, local and sustainable agriculture, interfaith dialogue and collaboration, and using shared music and meals as community builders.
I'm an unabashed music nerd. I sing, play guitar, and write songs for blues/folk ensemble Logger's Daughter. I also play a mean tambourine, when given the chance. You might find me singing at jazz jams around Portland or doing duets with my brother, Pete. If you ever need a buddy to go see a string quartet, call me up.
Enough about me. What about you?
I'm always looking for new clients and collaborators.
