Creative methodology

Designers are uniquely positioned to influence other people’s lives and shape our society. Therefore, good design must be responsible and thoughtful. In creating user experiences, I focus on delivering world-class, accessible solutions crafted for long-term, positive social impact.

What I'm supporting

I believe I have a responsibility to promote and empower the people doing society's most impactful work. I'm privileged to be able to redirect 2% of my monthly income to an array of organizations whose work I value. Each month I choose a mix from the following:

Recently completed

πŸ“—

Who Cooked Adam Smith's Dinner? β†’ This really helped stretch my understanding of the patriarchy, and it challenged a ton of my assumptions about money and socioeconomics.

πŸ“˜

Company of One β†’ Lots to learn from this one about solopreneurship and individual skill growth. Nice read for the entrepreneurially-inclined.

πŸ“•

Choose FI β†’ Loved this podcast so was eager to check this out. Lots of valuable frameworks for thinking about personal finance.

πŸ“™

Dollars and Sense β†’ Great read about the psychology of money. Formatted as a series of brief, story-like case studies, each paired with an analysis of the character's financial decision-making.

Balanced ambitions

My partner and I own and operate a small dance studio in central Florida. We're learning a ton from building this business!
