What I do

I am the deputy design director for the Emerging News Products team at The Washington Post. I joined The Post in 2015 and helped launch the national app suite, Snapchat Discover channel and The Lily.

 

To love what you do and feel that it matters — how could anything be more fun?

How I got here

I used to work at The Omaha World-Herald as a front page and features designer. Before that, I was a student at Ball State University where I studied journalism and design.

Outside the newsroom

I live in Washington surrounded by several dead succulents, because I can’t seem to keep them alive. I love my neighborhood and my tiny apartment in a historic row house on 16th Street. In my spare time, you’ll probably find me exploring D.C., listening to Taylor Swift, making monster cookies or visiting my family in Indianapolis.
