As a creative director and impact + communications strategist, I help nonprofits and mission-driven organizations design and launch high-impact activations and meaningful campaigns.
My skills range from strategic partnerships to team management, from developing brand voice to facilitating workshops. The diversity of experience has equipped me to design and lead ground-breaking initiatives for the City of Santa Monica, GOOD, Create CA, Invisible Children, Participant Media, UCLA, and Goodwill of Southern California, among many others. I'm known for my ability to balance creative ideation and direction with project management, knowing exactly how to bring complex ideas to life in a relatable, actionable, and inspiring way.
I have launched impact campaigns with some of the leading brands today (Google, Gates Foundation, American Express, Levi’s, Sundance, Nestlé, Starbucks, YouTube), spoken at SXSW (“Creating Social Action Campaigns for Films”), was mentored by Seth Godin, and won many awards for her creative work (including Webby Audience award and TED’s Ads Worth Spreading). I am co-founder of First Seating, an innovative consulting process that helps organizations tackle their biggest challenges through thoughtfully curated workshops and family-style meals. I currently serve as Board Chair for Materials & Applications, an innovative nonprofit dedicated to building a public culture of experimental architecture in Los Angeles, and I have a few side projects currently in the works. I live in Los Angeles with my husband, our sourdough starter, and lots of books.
