A planner, designer, and lover of cities
What I Do
From building a single-page resume to a 400-page state report with over 300 unique graphics – I can help with your document needs. Using Word, Excel, InDesign, Illustrator, Photoshop, and more. I love making information accessible to any audience.
I have created websites from scratch for projects, non-profits, and small businesses. I love making my clients dreams come alive online. I work exclusively in WordPress, I use easy to understand themes that I can train my clients to use so they can manage their own sites once built. I also offer training, graphic design, logo design, and content editing if needed.
With a background in planning, experience with research, writing, project management, operations support, and a wide variety of technical skills – I can help with all sorts of project needs.
I am an urban planner and designer, fascinated by how design can influence and impact people. I strive to create good design – from streetscapes to websites – to help people navigate their world. I know the importance of community involvement and have extensive experience engaging community leaders, local businesses, nonprofit organizations, and the general public.
I run my own consulting business focused on providing design and other project services to planning and communications firms. This came out of a desire to mix my creative side with my analytical side, and to use the wide variety of skills I have honed over the years. I have been an assistant project manager, designed several websites, written large reports, and created hundred of graphics. In addition to this work, I am also the Operations Manager for a non-profit focused on transportation advocacy, where I focus on racial equity, improving transparency, and leading the budgeting and other financial processes. I work there because I believe in the mission, but I have also gained valuable experience helping run a small organization.
I hold a master’s degree in Urban Planning and Design, with a Certificate in Urban Design from the University of Washington and a bachelor’s in Urban Studies from San Francisco State University. I am also a Greenroads Certified Sustainable Transportation Professional (STP).
