Every Step is Sacred

An editorial project, supported by social and email, initiated by the Harvard Innovation Labs’ Brand team. This editorial project highlighted an important aspect of the entrepreneurial journey: things not working out quite as you expect.

During the semifinalist phase of the President’s Innovation Challenge, 158 student and alumni teams are push the limits of what’s possible, pursuing their wildest imaginations in the name of their ventures.  But while only a fraction of teams will advance beyond the initial stage, the lessons they learned will help shape the future of their ventures.

I’m a designer with a background in photography, publishing, and librarianship.  

Most recently, I was an in-house Designer at Harvard Innovation Labs. Freelance clients include Hindman Auctions (Freeman’s | Hindman), Pillar VC, First to Knock,  Jay Youngdahl, and more.

Before my career in design I was an academic librarian at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.

In my spare time I maintain a personal art practice that is based in photography. Since 2017, I have published and edited Challenger, a BMX magazine that takes multiple forms. Its current form is a monthly subscriber only newsletter.
