I am a senior brand, product and visual designer with 10 years of experience leading design ops and marketing teams across print, web, film, branding, UX, AI, as well as digital and social campaign projects. I have supervised and managed projects in fast-paced, high-stakes, matrix-style environments for high-profile brands like the National Institutes of Health, The White House, AOL, West Hollywood Sunset Strip, the University of Southern California, and the University of Pennsylvania.
