I’m a creative, in the broadest sense of the word. My creative vision extends beyond the color wheel and off the page into… designing a cake I know will take me all day to bake, bringing a bride’s vision for her save the date to fruition, planning an event, or consulting on clever cocktail titles. Creating beautiful things is what I do.
I began my career as a communications, design, and fund-raising professional in the social entrepreneurial, nonprofit sector. I valued honing the design skills I learned in college in the nonprofit sector; it allowed me to gain experience on a myriad of projects – launching social media networks, marketing a new brand, designing new collateral, curating photography, managing a website, copy-writing blogs and newsletters, and much more.
