I’m a designer making content both beautiful and approachable, busy crafting digital systems and experiences.

I’m interested in the intersection between the designs we create, the content we produce, and the systems that power both. My work celebrates typographic detail and complex layers of information. Rumor has it, I’m also a grammar stickler with an exacting eye—an absent comma I can’t unsee.

I’m currently a Senior Product Designer at The New York Times, evolving NYT Cooking’s web and iOS experiences. Previously, I designed custom, responsive websites at Happy Cog for clients like Ben & Jerry’s, Coldwell Banker, and Harvard University. My responsibilities spanned conducting research and gathering requirements to modeling content and conceptualizing design solutions.

I earned an MFA in Graphic Design from Maryland Institute College of Art and BA in Fine Arts (concentration in Communication Design) from the University of Pennsylvania.
