Every word on the internet lives within the context of its container--and the culture. I help companies get it right, whether redesigning a brand voice or telling good stories. I come to the profession not only with the necessary skills and creativity, but also with an understanding of design and how the two work together.
2014 - Now: I write the words you read when you're thinking of buying something. I focus on brief digital moments and editorial-style branding. Recent clients includes Nike, Converse, Shutterfly and barre3.
2015 - 2017: As a writer at the swoosh, I wrote digital content for multiple global categories including Nike Sportswear, Nike+, NIKEiD, NikeCourt, Nike SB, Training and Talent Attraction.
2012 - 2014: Forgetting that words and pictures are no less important than numbers, I took a job in mortgage.
2012 - 2016: To maintain sanity amid the numbers, I worked with Portland-based Sahlia Jewelry on creative projects, eventually becoming the company’s in-house art director, copywriter and digital designer.
2009 - Now: Wanting to learn everything I could about making things look amazing, I began work as a freelance stylist, eventually creating wardrobe, prop and beauty looks for clients including Nike, Sock it to Me and Shwood Sunglasses.
2008: I received a BA in Magazine Journalism from the lovely University of Oregon.
2007: Taking nobody’s advice, I moved to Paris to study French. The city gave me a lot of art and only a little language.
2006: As an editorial intern at Portland Monthly Magazine, I worked alongside the (very cool, very talented) style editor, learning by example how to stay breezy while creating beauty.
2005-2008: I covered art, music and style for the university paper, where my story on a canceled show amassed a record number of hits from deeply distressed Lil Wayne fans.
2003: Already obsessed with stories and design, I fell in love with a fashion's answer to Alice and Wonderland--deciding I would spend my life creating worlds and giving old stories new life. In a less glamorous (but no less instructive) capacity, I spent the year as editor-in-chief of my humble high school newspaper.
