Life, by design
I’m a creative unicorn, well-versed in the art of storytelling through writing, photography and graphic design. I’m also a community builder, creating spaces for people to connect more deeply with each other and themselves—spaces where they can be seen, heard and celebrated.
As the founder of an award-winning live storytelling series, I’ve helped over 150 people tell their true stories on stage and produced over 40 shows and workshops since 2016. I started my career in journalism, which inspires and informs my creative approach, my ability to distill complex information, and the way I find beauty in the ordinary.
I love making things, asking questions, solving problems. I believe in leading a creative life—and that’s a life, by design. Some might call it setting a strategy, but it’s really about being open, honest and intentional.
In the past few years, immersing myself in more photography and design work has felt like coming home. Picking up my camera challenges me to be present, gain new perspectives and always looks for the light.
A few of my favorite things: Sunflowers. Dark chocolate. Plants. Pastries. Poetry. Conceptual art. Hiking. Birch trees. Intentional living. Digital painting. Daily affirmations. All things mid-century modern. Minimalism. Crispy muffin tops and coffee in the morning. Simplicity. Photo essays. Travel. Tiny homes.
Fun fact: I created my last name from the words “karmic synergy,” which to me, means giving to the world what you want to receive.
