About

I am a visual practitioner who specializes in graphic facilitation, graphic recording and graphic engagement.

I am passionate about co-creating spaces that support individuals and groups engaged in socially innovative process work. I use graphic techniques to deepen engagement and learning at meetings, workshops and conferences. These graphic techniques make events more inclusive, interactive, and memorable, helping participants integrate their learning, problem solve, make decisions and cultivate calls to action. The artifacts we create serve as a bridge to the future – a springboard that keeps the energy and action flowing post-event.

Previous to this visual work I was a marketing and communications specialist with 15+ years of experience with information technology, retail, nonprofits and small businesses.
