Creative Problem-Solving

In working with clients, I place strong emphasis on close collaboration, good communication and excellence in project execution. Balancing practical considerations and strategic objectives, presenting options and alternatives, as well as problem-solving to arrive at imaginative, creative solutions — these are core components of the design process as I see it.

Who is a client hoping to reach? How will a given project succeed in achieving the greatest impact? How can the process be structured to work best for a specific client? Every project is different; every client is different. I customize my approach and the solutions I propose based on the client, client style, project timeline, project requirements and available budget. There is no one-size-fits-all.


From journalism to NGOs and nonprofits, ground-breaking startups to high tech, I have had exposure to a broad variety of client environments and industries. Early on, my independent consulting career focused on print and publication design, then in 2000 shifted to assume a stronger focus on the internet, and more recently has incorporated photography and multimedia. Within the scheme of design and design technology disciplines, my experience ranges from communication strategy to visual branding, interaction and usability design to front-end website customization.


I have a keen interest in international collaborations and cross-cultural partnerships. Fluent in English, French and German, I maintain an international client base, including organizations located in Europe, North America and Southeast Asia.


I hold a Bachelors degree in Sociology from Wesleyan University, a Masters degree in Transcultural Studies from Heidelberg University, and a degree in graphic design from the Massachusetts College of Art. In the approach I take to my client work, I intertwine these disciplines.

The more detail you are able to provide, the better I will be able to respond to your request and to give you an idea of whether there might be a good fit for your project.
