My most current role as a Senior EGD & Wayfinding Specialist contractor for Tesla, based in the Fremont facility, has uniquely prepared me to continue my work integrating with large businesses to find the best way to provide effective and efficient solutions in the lived space. My work included interior & exterior wayfinding, updating signage standards, and refreshing the maps for a 5.1 million square foot facility while generating a Google Earth style interface.

For the past decade, I have worked as a digital/environmental/experiential graphic design professional presenting to and collaborating with architecture, engineering, and construction firms serving healthcare, municipalities, hospitality, and mixed-use residential sectors. This invaluable experience is part of how my skills can be of great benefit to the right organization.

Included with my responsibilities as an Environmental Graphic Designer and Wayfinding Specialist, I have also designed marketing materials, delivered presentations to major stakeholders for multi-million dollar projects, and administered the development of print, digital, and experiential projects. The value these attributes provide makes me a candidate who can fulfill multiple roles while successfully improving your bottom line.

Speaking of which, I co-owned a design studio outside of Boston and for five years I administrated the work of freelance talent with a watchful eye on the bottom line. That entrepreneurial experience is vital in maintaining both schedule and budget in the development and execution of quality design. 

It is my ardent hope that I find a company where I can create and discover new ways to provide for all industries while teaching what I know and learning more of what I have yet to experience.
