Passion Drives Success

down arrow
Don’t ask yourself what the world needs; ask yourself what makes you come alive, and then go and do that… what the world needs is people who have come alive.—Howard Thurman

We all want our work to be meaningful, to affect change, to make a difference. My work hasn’t always lived up to that, and I don’t know any creative person whose work always does, but it’s certainly what I strive for. I’ve worked with enough organizations to know that the resources are always limited, there are never enough people on staff, the budget is always too small, and there’s never enough time. I understand your frustrations, and I understand the value of what you do.

We’re in a time of political unrest, no question about it. Our society is leaning heavier on nonprofits to come to our rescue than we ever have. We’re donating more than ever before, we’re spending our money at companies that are making socially and environmentally conscious decisions, we’re looking to the people who have been on the front lines fighting for civil rights and against injustice for guidance and reassurance.

I know that you’re passionate about your work. You keep pushing despite your limitations because you know that what you do makes a difference. Passion drives success, but it’s never an easy path. What I aim to do for every organization I work with is make your job just a little easier, take something off your plate, make room for you to work on what really matters—the mission you wake up every day for.

I work with organizations I believe in.

A little about me.

I'm a product designer and tech nerd consultant with a focus on user experience, holistic design approaches, and realistic solution implementation. I was previously UX Architect at LimeRed Studio, and more recently UX/UI Designer at The Onion. I've been consulting full time for the last three years, and seeing my clients' eyes light up when they realize how much time they're going to save is what keeps me going! I like to fancy myself a great communicator, an avid listener, and someone who never stops learning—though tbh, I don't like to fancy myself much in general.. I just don't have the ego.

When I’m not crafting delightful experiences for kickass clients, I’m probably out swing dancing! I teach Lindy Hop and swing dancing around CT, and I run a nonprofit dance organization in Chicago with a few of my friends! If you find yourself in Chicago and looking for a good time, check out Traffic Jam!

Sometimes I make dumb things and take pictures and stuff and post them on my catch-all site. Visit at your own risk, it can get pretty weird. #noshame
