    I excel at crafting high-quality, visual stories with impact - and am seeking to do so particularly in the conservation and climate space. My flair for both the nerdy and the beautiful is at the core of my work as an art director, graphic designer and photographer. Blending a journalistic foundation with expertise in design, I enjoy translating complex ideas into eye-catching stories with precise attention to detail. From helping a green energy startup find its identity to relaunching major brands, I have experience telling visual stories both big and small, both for agencies and independently. I am also a fine-art and aspiring conservation photographer, with a passion for questioning humanity's relationship to landscapes and wildlife. I am currently processing and curating several photography series I developed while spending six months of this year in Argentina, Chile and Ecuador to learn about conservation work in these countries' most remote areas.
