I believe that information is an experience.


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

I know that all information has something 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 readers and viewers. 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 sometimes 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 education.
