I'm a visual designer in San Francisco – currently working with Google in Mountain View.



Since 2014, I’ve been running my own design studio. I work with clients like Airbnb, Apple, Facebook, and OpenTable creating thoughtful product experiences for billions of people. It’s pretty much the best.

From 2011-2012, I was building about.me from scratch with wonderful humans. Then I left startup land for agency life at Smart Design! For two years, I was designing products, conducting research, and producing dreamy concepts for clients like Samsung and HP.

Somewhere in the middle, I was co-leading a design education company called The Secret Handshake. From 2013-2015, I was organizing sold-out conferences for 200+ design students in San Francisco, Chicago, and New York at venues like Adobe and Art Director’s Club.

At this point, my portfolio is pretty out of date. What would I even put in it? Gradients I made at Apple? I dunno, here's the book last year :)

Wanna talk shop? I’m pretty busy right now & open to reading notes from you.

BRB, building the future!

She’s worked on a variety of projects, from web to devices to mobile, and is always willing to pitch in and help whenever she can. She’s always eager to improve and learn, which is one of her great strengths.”
