You found me! Who am I?
I’m a restless lover of clarity and natural beauty. To date, I've run six marathons and thousands more miles on the roads and trails of thirteen countries around the world. Sometimes my dog (Wingnut, she's the best) and/or my husband (he's okay too) come too. I sketch, design, build, explore, and learn every day.
Life's been this series of adventures since I graduated from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology with a BS in Mechanical Engineering and a minor in Brain and Cognitive Sciences in 2014. I started in the Harvard-MIT Health Sciences and Technology PhD program in Medicial Engineering and Medical Physics, taking courses at the medical school and doing graduate research in intravascular devices and lower-limb human-device prosthesis interfaces. Most importantly, I founded the MIT Puppy Lab. I left in 2016 to pursue medical illustration, photography, and independent consulting, which I still do to this day.
Somewhere between then and now, I spent two years making waves as the Creative Lead for an industrial 3D printing company. I traveled the continent meeting, interviewing, photographing, and filming customers transforming manufacturing workflows. I led teams, a brand refresh, video productions, product photoshoots, and implementation of design systems.
I believe I've left these places better than I found them, and I'm ready for the next opportunity.
