I started translating technical information to others when I was in Boy Scouts. I haven't stopped since. As a special education teacher I taught Universal Design methodologies, administered tests and analyzed datasets to inform decisions, and through scaffolding and visual representation, broke down complicated concepts for all learners to succeed.
With a background in Graphic Design and Digital Arts, I learned the trade and practice of projecting ideas and experiences with visual and textual content. Working as an art director in the publishing industry, I focused on content and typography. During my free time I like to be a photographer, maker, bike rider, sketcher, cooker, and learner.
I poured drinks for over 12 years. With an honest and open personality, I quickly understood my audience, resulting in empathetic conversations, rational decisions, anticipating customer needs, and the ability to adapt my language and style to different customers.
