Profile
I work with teams to drive growth and innovation through design, challenging conventions across mediums and platforms. With a background in publishing, business, and design, I collaborate with clients and teams to define their business agenda, develop deep strategy, and lead the realization of that strategy through the design of meaningful experiences.

I’ve co-founded startups and studios, written visionary brand strategies and stories, and led the design of brand and product experiences on the global stage. Before co-founding Grammar, I co-founded Form&—an award-winning design studio within the Havas Group. Entrepreneurial and strategic, I find ways to cut through the noise and design responsive systems and experiences that are beautiful, experiential, and intentional.
