With over a decade of experience utilizing digital media to tell engaging stories and establishing my client's online presence, I believe that mindful design leaves a lasting impression. My passion for design stems from two interests: community building and social good. Combining my professional experience with photography, website design, digital video, and print, I have a toolset capable of executing campaigns that elevate my customers' projects to help them flourish.
Women and Prison: A Site for Resistance makes visible women's experiences in the criminal justice system. The stories, originally planned as a book, are supported by a collection of resources, such as organizations, reports, essays, and links to a wide range of information about women in prison.
Firebelly Design chose Beyondmedia as their Grant for Good recipient and created a zine from these stories. I took the zine assets created during Camp Firebelly to digitize the project, launching a full-featured website that was searchable and updatable by volunteers.
Fire This Time Fund was a four year old, all volunteer organized, independent giving circle. They supported small-scale, creative social change projects initiated by local artists, educators and organizers who weave an analysis of racial, economic, social, environmental, or gender justice into their work. As a circle member I volunteered my skills to create an online retrospective for the grant's past recipients to provide a history for the fund's grantees and showcase their important work.
Before appearing on NBC's "The Voice", Sarah Potenza's blues band, Sarah and the Tall Boys, needed an online store and website featuring tour dates and news. I created a customized CMS solution that they could maintain after the final design was submitted and launched.
Over the course of 6 years, I worked as the in-house website designer for Beyondmedia Education. Expanding the non-profits website to incorporate an online marketplace for educators and institutions to purchase our films was a major focus on the organization's website redesign. I created a custom solution using the Expression Engine CMS to facilitate online sales as well as create media-rich landing pages for each of the organizations projects.
