My design philosophy is one of simplicity and purity. I strive to promote beauty through unique graphics and colors that inspire an authentic connection between a product, a brand, an experience and the consumer. Close collaboration with my clients ensures that we deliver creative, relevant and functional solutions to whatever the project may be.
In 1998 I graduated from the University of California at Davis with a BS in Design. My design studies ranged from apparel to furniture to interior architecture, but my love for graphic design beat out the others. I have since worked as a graphic, pattern and color designer across a multitude of platforms. I arrived in Portland in 2001 and spent six incredible years at Nike. During that time I designed and developed graphics for a variety of products, product packaging and award winning print materials. I developed and implemented seasonal creative direction and color palettes for the Nike Vision and Timing groups. I joined the Nike TechLab team where I had the great fortune to collaborate with both Apple and Philips in the research, design and development of innovative sports products including speed and distance monitors, sport audio players, headphones and accessories.
In 2007 I left Nike and have since been a freelance design consultant. My client list includes Nike, Cinco Design, Microsoft (while at Cinco Design), Lucy Activewear, Jordan Brand and Tempur-Pedic.
