GRAPHIC DESIGNER  //  EVENT PLANNER  //  BRAND MANAGER

Most recently I have helped to elect Hillary Clinton as the Senior Designer and Brand Manager at Correct The Record, the lead Super PAC defending and supporting her. While managing a team of designers and building multiple sub-brands and campaigns, I have also executed the launch of press products and helped the organization garner millions of earned impressions. As a freelance specialist I have also designed and branded content for organizations including The Gay & Lesbian Victory Fund, Tom Udall for U.S. Senate, Lindbeck for Congress and Don Quixote Winery & Distillery.

Although my emphasis is primarily in Democratic politics, I have worked at creative agencies before as well. Before moving to DC I managed content for national brands at Crispin Porter + Bogusky in Boulder, CO. There I worked on large teams and contributed to accounts including Aspen Dental, Infiniti, Hotels.com and Kraft Macaroni & Cheese.

When I’m not designing in DC, you will probably find me running around the national mall and finishing that run with a Georgetown Cupcake (or two). And if I’m not there, I’m probably at Disney World. I love to cycle, practice yoga, travel, golf, and it’s even better when I can do all of those things with my dog, Dash.
