5 reasons, 5 minutes. Let’s see if we can build a fruitful partnership.
1. Flexible and multi-disciplinary
Researcher, designer, developer— my titles have always been in flux to serve my end users. I've led discovery teams, prototyped high-fidelity flows, tested for accessibility compliance, and presented at major client meetings.
2. 5+ years of design consulting experience
From serving government agencies like the CIA, USDA, and Veterans Affairs to providing consulting guidance to Southern New Hampshire University and Amtrak— I'm a pro at adapting to new design contexts.
3. I regularly teach and speak on design
I've been invited to speak at the National Intelligence University, Carnegie Mellon, and Virginia Tech. I’ve also helped architect design ethics course material at the University of Virginia.
4. Design is my calling, not just a career
Design is in my blood. I’ve read over 100+ books on design and regularly give back to the community from improving accessibility at DC Design Week to sourcing diverse speakers for the Dot Gov Design Conference.
5. Inclusion first
Ethically grounded, inclusive, empathetic— are the adjectives most frequently ascribed to me by my peers. It’s because I believe in serving and centering marginalized people first. I design with, I don’t design for.
