Hi, I'm Sarah.

Life is complicated. I like to make it less so with thoughtful design solutions. 

I am a versatile design leader specializing in user experience, branding, marketing design, and media. 

Throughout my design career I have worked in fast-paced agencies, corporate in-house design teams, and in freelance roles, working with large tech companies, financial institutions, government organizations, travel and tourism bureaus, medical and personal care providers, educational organizations and non-profits. 

An inquisitive problem solver and collaborator, I naturally rely on these traits to craft thoughtful design solutions through interviews, research, and a 'how might we' approach. I have a unique ability to find creative strengths within teams and lead those teams to create awesome creative programs. With a keen ability to bridge communication and ideas between various contributors, my goal is to ensure user and client needs are prioritized, while design standards are never compromised. 

I am presently based in beautiful Boulder, Colorado.
