I am a graphic designer with a practice that includes visual identity, brand strategy, print, interactive, exhibition design, writing, and research.

In addition to my design work, I teach and am deeply invested in cultivating iterative, concept-driven work with my students.

I'm the co-author of Five Conversations on Graphic Design and Creative Writing, which considers interdisciplinary approaches to design education, and was the first of its series by Pratt Press.
