Growing up in the backstages of ballet, I kickstarted my career designing punk posters for underground theatre in Baltimore. I co-started a production company, Painted Stage, with my brother. And got hustlin’ in-house at Towson University’s Design+Pub office. Around this time, Beatnik Baltimore began.
Then I drove west and chased a dream. Earning my stripes at the renowned DDB Chicago agency. Staying hip in counter culture freelancing for Second City, Lights Out Theatre and an array of independent filmmakers.
Over the next 10 years I honed my craft full spectrum from TV to mobile. 5 years in the rough jungle of start-up life. Followed by 5 years in online higher ED. I produced a nationally ranked TV commercial “Never Stop Growing”. Then focused fully on UI/UX including the launch of Sophia, and was part of the team that developed the first ever personality-based artificial intelligence in EDU named Irving.
In 2021, everything got more magical. I joined Outright, as Director of Design and UX, then became Creative Director 2 years later. Emboldening brands, leading workshops, crafting visual stories through creative and designing digital experiences that drive change. Working with our incredible clients to impact climate change, social justice, public health, reproductive rights, luxury travel & more.
