I’m a creative generalist working to produce remarkable content and user experiences.
With a T-shape posture, my focus has converged on a practice of strategic narrative and human centered design because I feel the narrative of a project is equally as important as the environment. When these two domains harmonize they can bring clarity and translate complex problems into creative, impactful and value-driven solutions.
I’m always excited to bring my experience, exposure and skills to new projects so feel free to have a look around and let’s have a chat.
In search of a new editorial and business model for my writing, I stepped out of my comfort zone and took a critical look at the [music] publishing scene to conceive, co-create and produce a print and digital publication. With its original editorial stance, design and distribution network, the publication immediately landed on the international scene alongside the established voices and received press and reprint requests from a variety of outlets. Here’s how the whole project came together from concept to completion to personal reflection.

Wrote and produced various articles for an international list of forward-thinking arts & culture publications across print, digital and video formats.
From pirate radio to a boutique hotel lobby comes a radio show re-examining Washington, D.C.’s rich skateboard history through the perspectives of creativity, personal growth, community activism, architecture, urbanization and exploration.

I worked with the DC Listening Lounge, an audio collective of sound artists in the greater Washington, D.C. area, to create and produce various print and digital and motion graphics for their annual exhibition.

I worked with Japan’s leading stop motion animation studio as they created and produced a series of commercials and episodes for the first global campaign of the Nissan Leaf, at the time the first mass-produced automobile without a gas tank.
Describing the abstract and raw nature of Atsuhiro Ito’s experimental work in addition to the sonic expressions he performs through a printed article was very, very challenging so I co-produced an accompanying video for the Wire Magazine’s website.
What started on Sunday nights with friends gathering to dance has grown into an internationally-known fixture of the D.C. nightlife spectrum.
