My professional career has focused on communication: In a science museum, as a journalist and editor, as a graphic and web designer, and currently, a UX designer. Organizations that I have had the pleasure of working with — as a staff or freelance designer, writer, or both — include: AARP, American Chemical Society, American Society of Interior Designers, Chicago Museum of Science and Industry, Cornell University Press, Crabtree + Company, Discover, Georgetown University Press, Health, Meadows Design Office, National Air and Space Museum, National Endowment for the Humanities, National Institutes of Health, National Science Foundation, Speak Agent, Inc., and Washington Post/Newsweek Interactive.
I am currently employed full-time as a UX designer. However, I am open to inquiries for freelance graphic design projects designing logos, posters, and book jackets.
