I've been thinking and writing about design for more than a decade as a journalist, and shaping the way others think about and look at design through my work as a content and communications strategist, B2B marketer, ghostwriter, editor, educator, and curator.
I’m currently the Director of Content and Communications at Bresslergroup
, a research-driven product innovation lab in Philadelphia. Their strategists, researchers, designers, and engineers have a lot to say, and I help them say it.
My background is a blend of journalism, magazine and book publishing, plus digital marketing and enough knowledge of the technical backend to find the words and channels to connect clients with the audiences they want to reach.
As a journalist, my articles have appeared in publications including Metropolis, Communication Arts, the New York Times T Magazine, Departures, Town & Country, U.S. Airways magazine, Fortune Small Business, and National Geographic Traveler.
In addition to the work featured on this site, I've been a design columnist for the Philadelphia Inquirer; Contributing Editor for Contract Design magazine; project manager for a white paper about DesignPhiladelphia's impact; ghostwriter for a book on product and furniture design; and a guest curator for InLiquid's Art for the Cash Poor. I've also provided content development and consulting services for a wide range of companies and nonprofits. I believe strongly in giving back to my community, and I volunteer for many local organizations including my neighborhood
's Schools and Youth Committee and DesignPhiladelphia
's Steering Committee. A few years ago, I co-founded Spells Writing Lab
, an NPO that provides writing workshops to underserved school-aged kids in Philadelphia.
When I'm not doing all of the above, I'm hanging out in Queen Village, Philly's oldest (and most charming
) neighborhood, with my husband and two kids. Say hello on Twitter
