My passion for design runs deep. I bring a human-centered design approach to community and civic challenges in Philadelphia, and, encourage students to value their roles as citizen designers. When not doing that, I can be found obsessing over the minute details of a book’s design. Or, taking a long trek.
I have 30+ years of corporate and non-profit design experience recognized by AIGA, Communication Arts, Creativity, and How Magazine. I teach Design Thinking in Johns Hopkins Executive Education program, and Design Theory at Jefferson University. Currently I’m writing curriculum for an MS in Health Communication Design at Jefferson. In 2009 I was named an AIGA Fellow. I have a BS from the University of Delaware, an MFA from Yale and completed AIGA/Harvard Business School Design Leaders program.
