Over the past 10 years I have become an expert in creative process. I hold my BFA in Communication Design. My coursework included Information Architecture, Design Research, and Design History with a focus on design thinking, interaction design, and human factors. My thesis was “curation as an expression of identity”. I grew my career in the advertising industry, working as a Planner for some of the most recognized brands: LeBron James, Panera, Staples, Adobe, and Luxxotica. In 2013 I packed up an SUV and drove across the country from Boston to LA to start my own consultancy where I built a client roster that included icons like Apple, Beats by Dre, The Viper Room, and Microsoft. Influenced by the city’s creative community, I became a 1-woman hub for insights on millennials and youth culture, growing a loyal following for my trendspotting and curatorial work. Over the years I broadened my skill set to include a teaching certifications in both Visual Art (MA K-12) and Yoga (200hr Yoga Alliance certified). I have been also been working as an instructor for General Assembly since their inception. In search of more space (literally & metaphorically), I landed in Austin, TX at the end of 2016. I am currently in the process of building out a home studio and live/work space for workshopping and retreats.
