UX/UI 100%
Branding 100%
Copy writing 80%

I deliver design that is strategic, emotive, and gratifying. Recently worked as 'Art dept. of one' at major non-profit - DonorsChoose.org. There I was given complete design oversight, responsible for everything from UX, UI, brand stewardship, prototyping, managing contracted designers, generating original copy, to launching products, gift cards, all while interfacing with a stellar list of partners - Oprah, Google, Starbucks, Warby Parker, Bill & Melinda Gates, and Steven Colbert. A published writer, I enjoy generating narrative copy that enhances the visual experience. I have sold art for green money, exhibited in small galleries and was granted my first artist in residency last year. And for a few action-filled months I worked as a pvt. detective in Oakland, CA and actually had to ask: "Have you seen this man before?" (They inevitably hadn't)
