I’m a designer, writer, and animator in Oakland, CA.

Product design and strategy

For a decade I’ve been a design leader everywhere from tiny startups to the City and County of San Francisco. I’ve cultivated an obsessive focus on team communication and a passion for the open web.

Web design and content

Your product is complex, but your marketing doesn’t have to be. I’ll articulate what makes your product special in clear, concise language and a compelling responsive website.

Motion graphics

I love putting design into motion with video or code. I’m equally comfortable finessing the details of a loading spinner or animating an explainer video from scratch.

Team culture

I believe great design is only sustainable alongside a humane, inclusive team culture. I’ve spent a lot of time helping teams improve their organizational infrastructure, from workshopping team values to building more equitable hiring pipelines.
