Bio: I'm currently the senior designer on the Creative Studio team at CreativeLive, where I work on brand identity, art direction, illustration, marketing campaigns, style guide development, occasional print projects, and many other assorted things. When I'm not at work, I also take on freelance illustrative and design projects at home in the East Bay (read: not San Francisco). 

I'm interested in lots of things, including: hand-lettering & typography, feminism, indie rock, brand & identity development, Thai food, social justice, corgis, literature, and donuts. In addition to artmaking, I play guitar and sing in a band called Phosphene. 

Selected clients include SpaceNK, MarninSaylor, W42ST Magazine, Render Quarterly, The Bay Bridged and Different Fur Studios.
