Creative Direction + Graphic Design

for businesses and organizations focused on environmental and social responsibility

/ About Me

wearer of all hats

I am an independent graphic design consultant located in Arlington, VA.

I have been a graphic designer for over twenty years and am still in love with it as much now as I was I began. My job is a beautiful mix of the practical and the visual, and it gives me the opportunity to work with some really great people. My clients are mostly non-profits and small businesses, most of which are focused on social or environmental responsibility. My projects are diverse—one week I may be creating a brand identity for a new business owner, while the next I may be designing a complex publication for an international non-profit. As a result, I have gained broad experience and thrive on variety.

When I’m not at work, I am busy as the mother of two silly little girls. Their creativity is inspiring, if not exhausting. You can find me on the trail before the sun comes up, often listening to a design podcast, or socializing with my running group.

I would be a vegan chef if I had to quit my day job. There are always freshly baked goods in my house. I collect vintage textiles and enjoy going into antique/thrift stores everywhere I travel. After several years in the rural NW, I’m excited to be back in the noise and excitement of the DC area.
