endlessly curious, a design thinker, agile problem solver, storyteller, skilled listener, effective communicator, a fan of information design, user experience, and data, a proponent of strategic planning, über organized and efficient project coordinator, a want-to-be UI or product designer, midwesterner with a work ethic to match, along with east coast authenticity
ONE:Problem-solving brings me joy both as a human and professional. It could be a complex telling of a story across mediums to a diverse audience through various channels or as simple as bringing order to my garden chaos. Whatever the situation, I am engaged, doing good, and manifesting results.
TWO :I am multidisciplinary. I relish the collaborative nature of working across disciplines, clients, and personalities. It is exhilarating. I liken it to learning a new language, one I can use to tell even more meaningful stories. I am an astute listener, a beneficial skill.
THREE : Complacency is my enemy. I ask hard questions and, at times, am dangerously curious. I cannot stress how important it is to me to be challenged and creatively engaged.
