Introducing The Determined, a collective of designers, makers, doers—rebels hell bent for positive change. We exist to ensure good people doing good work not fail.




As a Design Strategist and Creative Facilitator, I focus on social innovation, human-centered design, and purpose-driven initiatives that create positive change in the world.

I work with people that give a damn. I use design and creativity to help organizations big and small make huge, meaningful impact in unexpected ways.



Three ways I collaborate with people


1. Produce and facilitate workshops
I create custom and topic-based workshops for people to rapidly prototype ideas based on challenges they are wanting to solve.
2. Design
With a background in web and graphic design, I bring ideas to life, whether it’s designing solutions from workshops or collateral for clients.
3. Strategy & Implementation
An idea is only valuable if it’s out there for people to see and act upon. I use unique and fun methods to help share ideas.

Whether it’s one or all of the above, I’m happy to contribute in any way I can.
