I enjoy helping startups in biotech, healthtech, STEM, and life sciences distill complicated concepts through elegant digital products.

About me



I'm a designer who transforms complex ideas into elegant design solutions.

I enjoy collaborating with stakeholders in STEM, life sciences, and biotech to create meaningful digital products. 

Elegant Design Solutions for
Complex, Science and Health-Focused Products
My background is in visual design, visual journalism and informational graphics. Over the last ten years, I've applied these disciplines of 'form meets function' to help organizations in the biotech, healthcare, STEM, and life sciences improve their science communication and highly-technical digital outputs. Today, I'm excited by the challenge of creating new tools and products to empower scientists and science communicators, healthcare providers and patients, technologists and techies, and other humans at the intersection of science and innovation.

Currently, I'm a solopreneur over at Conifer Creative and a Creative Partner with Little Dog Communications.

In past design lives, I was a Senior Designer / Art Director at Messina Design in San Diego, CA, a Brand Designer at Great Ecology in La Jolla, CA, and a Digital Designer at The Bernard Hodes Group in New York, NY.

In my downtime, you'll find me traveling, e-biking to the market, bouldering and walking my Shepard-mix rescue Luna on the beaches of San Diego. 

Thanks for stopping by.

Luna, working hard or... 



making data beautiful

Nothing makes me happier than function taking an elegant form.
