A Brief History
Most notable for my red hair, happy-go-lucky attitude and inability to sit in the sun for very long, I'm a creative director, occasional writer, and champion of women with an eye for the big picture and the know-how to wrangle the best people to make it happen.
Currently, I'm working on branding and strategy projects for local Detroit area businesses and non-profits. Prior to moving to Michigan, I worked as Director of Creative Strategy for HeLo, a badass experiential production company out of Los Angeles. As one of the earliest members of the small core team, I helped launch and lead HeLo to over ten Cannes Lions awards and recognition by AdAge as a 2015 Production Company Standout in their annual A-List report. I've written on all things design for Road & Track, and my writing has also appeared on sites like Jezebel and Jalopnik.
Previously, I was Creative Director of Studio@Gawker, Gawker Media's in-house advertising creative shop. Before that, I was a Senior Designer, Global Licensing for Mattel, working on brands like Hot Wheels, Max Steel, Monster High and Polly Pocket. I've also designed websites, print materials, and t-shirts and accessories that sold in Fred Segal that were way too expensive for me to ever actually buy.
Oh, and I got my start by winning a Facebook contest.
