A little bit about me
I am a storyteller, conducting memory-based interviews, leading research teams and developing insights and strategy. I am also a seeker of beauty, a portrait creator, a visual artist who loves to dabble in all kinds of creative projects and collaborations.
I have worked in strategic consumer researcher for more than 15 years. I have owned and operated my own art and design business for more than 5 years.
I am a natural-born researcher with a curious mind. When bringing people’s stories to life, a visual arts and design background, mixed with a journalism degree make for a unique and passionate storytelling style.
When I look at the world, I choose to see beauty. I look for potential and possibility. I want to see how things could be, not how things have been or ought to be. When I look at the world I see a transformation, a chance to make things shine a little bit brighter.
My work encompasses and utilizes my professional skills as a researcher and consultant, in combination with my curiosity and my artistic ability, to bring beauty into the world. My projects are an expression of this unique combo, in whatever form or shape it takes.
Being artful with purpose is the only way I know to make sense of the world around me and create meaning for myself and others. After all, the power of art is that it engages both mindfully and physically, which acts as an anchor, to keep one grounded in the present moment. I find this balances my analytical side and allows me to process information while in motion, which is how I think best.
When I’m not interviewing or writing, you’ll find me in motion — in my studio painting, hammering a piece of metal into a bracelet, inventing a new DIY project, taking photos or doing yoga.
My job is to Illuminate beauty wherever I go, ignite that same passion in others and inspire them to create beautiful work with meaning.
