About Me

I am an award-winning Art Director with ten years of combined experience in the nonprofit and media sectors. My passions include inclusive storytelling, design for social change, and cross-functional systems-building.

I'm an Art Director at M+R and an Adjunct Professor at Lesley University, College of Art. Previously, I have worked with organizations such as AIDS Action Committee, Boston Area Rape Crisis Center, the Boston Foundation, Fenway Health, Her Campus Media, Kindred, and Make-A-Wish Massachusetts and Rhode Island to create visuals and campaigns that inspire community engagement.
