Designer, recently returned from Brazil, bilingual in English & Portuguese with a Masters Degree in Graphic Design. My professional background connects education, business and technology in work for Fortune 500 Brands as well as pioneering start-ups. In parallel, I‘ve taught extensively at the Parsons The New School for Design and The Pratt Institute. In Brazil, I had been running my own independent Design studio and written about my experiences for international publications like Print magazine.

I specialize in and am passionate about empathic design; and in Brazil I found the ideal creative landscape to expand and develop these skills.  My goal is to create experiences that engage and delight multiple audiences in projects that are multi-channel, cross-media and transdisciplinary. This takes many forms, spanning strategy, branding, e-commerce, product design and online/on-air tv content creation.

Brazil has been a vibrant creative laboratory for devising new ways to help clients envision, adapt and embrace challenge and change for their organizations.
