I’m a master organizer and problem solver. For over 10 years, I’ve been helping non-profits and businesses discover their brand and mission and express it through dynamic marketing strategies and design solutions. I also love utilizing online apps and tools to improve communications and minimize administrative responsibilities.
My skillset expands beyond design and creative direction into education (teaching/training), marketing, seo, social media, email marketing, front-end website development, and content creation and management.
When I’m not on the job, I train and teach martial arts. And, I’m also a dog rescuer, novice powerlifter (100b/175dl/100s), amateur beatboxer, and lifelong student.

MAINE COLLEGE OF ART
I graduated from Maine College of Art with a BFA with honors in 2004. But, that was really just the beginning of my journey as a designer.
DWELL CREATIVE, 2004
My first gig was working for a sustainability marketing mastermind. At Dwell Creative (currently the SOAP Group) I worked side by side with John Rooks as a creative director helping to grow the business by 200% each year.
PERCH DESIGN STUDIO, 2008-2015
After leaving Dwell I teamed up with a developer (Don Havey) to create Perch. As co-owner, I set the quality of design standards and operations for the company. Don could dabble in design and I can dabble in development so together we were able to create and build more cohesive online applications and campaign solutions.
You can see the work of Perch here.
RIVERVIEW FOUNDATION, 2016
As Riverview’s designer and marketing manager I’ve been responsible for all print and online communications. With 2 locations and 300 students, the school produces everything from sign up forms to summer camp packets and from rack cards to facebook content.
