Multidisciplinary Designer



About Me

I'm a generalist with a wide range of interests. I thrive on challenging work, and draw on a broad base of skill, experience, and creativity to execute excellent design solutions. I am equally comfortable working in rapid charrettes, and on long-term projects. When meeting with project stakeholders, I excel in helping non-designers identify, understand, and articulate their design needs.
