I make chaos make meaning.


As a communication designer and writer, I turn complex information into stories that you can walk through, read through, comprehend, and care about. Words and pictures are my tools. Projects as varied as museums, books, and bar graphs are the final result.

I know that all information has something exciting to say, so I'm eager to stick my hands into the mud and give it shape. Then I get to share those discoveries with you. And frankly, that’s the coolest.

Background in brains. In addition to owning a brain of my own, I have a background in cognitive and educational psychology studies. I want to know to how people perceive, learn, and understand information (how it gets into your brain and swirls around and finds its way back out again).

Spoonful of science fiction. When I tell information stories, I constantly pull on my skills as a fiction writer and reader to make them meaningful and compelling. In writing, my special interests are in children's literature, literacy, and history education.
