Discover. Build. Ship.

About me.
As Mailchimp's Director of Brand Design, I help Marketing and Product Design build customer experiences that are on-brand. I also work with Portfolio Design to document our beautiful new design system, and with Culture to infuse our employee experiences with our signature brand.

Last year I lead the effort to reimagine the Mailchimp brand (yep, the yellow and those crazy good illustrations), redesign the marketing website experience, and launch an enormous ad campaign celebrating the shift from email tool to marketing platform. This year we're going even further.

Before joining Mailchimp, I ran a design consultancy from a 1987 Volkswagen Vanagon while traveling across our great country. I remain passionate about mentoring designers and staying active in the design and tech communities. I have also lead creative and engineering teams at ad agencies, dot coms, and app consultancies. My work has produced award winning solutions for clients like Ford, WebMD, Cartoon Network, and REI.
