As COO of AREA 17, I work across our New York and Paris studios putting the strategy and systems in place that allow interdisciplinary teams to thrive and innovate to create products and platforms designed for utility and delight. With our mission to make great work and live great lives as my brief, I connect the people, process and partners our success as a mission-driven agency.
Since 2006 I've worked within media, publishing, tech – as a creative director, designer and entrepreneur. Most recently, I was Senior Director and Head of Creative at Purpose where I drove a re-envisioned brand and agency arm, leading a team of designers and storytellers and launching organizations and campaigns designed for public engagement. My work has premiered on the The New York Times, The Guardian, Washington Post, BuzzFeed, and others, and has received awards and nominations from Fast Company's Innovation by Design Awards, Webby's, Mashies and Creativity International.
Day to day you'll find me running and biking around Brooklyn, gardening with my fingers crossed, traveling often near and far and eating all the spicy food I can find.
