About me

I apply my 10+ years of industry experience and passion for naming and branding to create compelling and memorable identities for clients across various sectors. I have a keen eye for brand positioning and differentiation, and I enjoy developing custom strategies and messages that reflect the personality, culture, and goals of each client.

I have worked with some of the world’s most recognizable brands, such as Samsung, Amazon, JPMorgan Chase & Co., and Target, as well as innovative startups and social enterprises. I take pride in delivering high-quality work that meets the expectations and needs of my clients, and I collaborate closely with them throughout the creative process. I also have a background in artistic programming for a major music non-profit, which gives me a unique perspective and appreciation for the power of storytelling and expression.
