I've been designing solutions for the mass consumption of information for the better part of two decades. Blessed to have worked with amazing folks at every stop along the way, my print and digital work has been recognized and awarded by a variety of organizations. In the wake of that success, I've spoken to numerous organizations around the globe about how to push their ideas and solutions forward.
I spent much of my time as a print designer and newsroom manager but I am committed to continuing to expand my digital abilities. While Excelerate Labs and Starter League gave me my initial push, I can't say enough about the impact working with the brilliant News Application Team has had on my development.
As I have documented at length in Cancer/Code/Core, I've spent the past half decade realigning my priorities to focus my energy on the things that matter most. Doing good work is still the cornerstone of my life, but my life expands far beyond where I happen to have a desk. It starts at home with my family. Mentorship also plays a key role whether it is with cancer patients through Imerman Angels, public school students through FutureFounders or Sunday school students through Soul City Kids.
After giving back to the community, I give back to myself as I am committed to living an active and healthier lifestyle than I did prior to fighting Stage 3B Hodgkin's Lymphoma in 2010. You can often find me running the Chicago lakefront or races for causes like Team In Training as a result.
Thankfully, the story continues. Watch this space for future updates.
