I am the Design Director at the Phoenix design agency Forty.

I graduated from the University of Northern Iowa with a Bachelors Degree in Art, Emphasis in Graphic Design, in 1997.

With many years of design experience and a lifelong passion for understanding the world around me, I focus on quality, clarity and usability.

My ideal day is 50% learning and 50% doing something about what I just learned. I love trying new things and taking road trips with my husband. I’m on a quest to be my healthiest self. And I have the most awesome cats in the world — the only bad thing about road trips is missing them while I’m gone.

During the week you can find me having a blast working with the amazing Forty team at Gangplank Chandler.
