I am not your average designer

I traveled to Afghanistan in 2003 to help two National Geographic photographers launch several Afghan-run media start-ups. While I was there, I taught 19 students the art of photojournalism. My classroom was an old Taliban prison. We transformed that space as well as the lives of everyone in that classroom that year. Within a couple of years, my students began to change the world with their images.  A few years later, one of them won the Pulitzer Prize.

This is what I do

It’s hard to show what I do in a SINGLE job title. This might help. 

Brand Design
I have experience creating and shaping corporate identities: From logos to websites to social media projects, every detail is carefully crafted.  See my case studies here.

Graphic Design
I use Sketch, Photoshop, Indesign, and Illustrator to shape, change and mold my projects into things you will remember. I even use these tools to make designs for shirts. Check out my start-up, Resilient Union, LLC for graphic design examples of my work.

I am a globally published photojournalist. My passion for design stems from my first love of photography. See my work here. I’ve also produced two full-length documentaries, one with radio journalism legend, Bob Edwards, in conjunction with American University and MHz Networks.

Human-Centered Design
I am intimately familiar with UX design and design thinking iterative cycles. I have applied them to my work as a designer, led workshops, and taught the basics to designers and non-designers alike. I am a member of the Interaction Design Foundation and have completed the UX Design Circut with General Assembly.  See the process.

WordPress Development
I have been creating WordPress sites for more than 10 years. But like most platforms, (including SharePoint, Shopify, and Drupal) they all can be designed and manipulated with the same basic tools I use daily: HTML, CSS, and javascript.

Strategic Communication
I was the Director of Communication for a political party in NW Florida and also served as a digital and communication specialist for a nationally recognized political candidate for Congress. I designed their graphics, narrowed their message, defined their audience, and helped craft political positioning that reinforced building bridges over expanding the political divide.
