At my core, I’m a storyteller, and have been designing and crafting strategies for some of the biggest names in the Federal tech industry for the past 15 years. For my previous employer, I served as Senior Designer and Creative Director, weaving narratives for renowned brands in Washington. Now, I’m eager and very excited to explore new pastures, and uncover fresh stories waiting to be told on a more human, intimate scale.
