Design for People
 

I worked with designer Scott Stowell to execute this oral history of his studio’s work. According to publisher Metropolis Books: “Most design books focus on outcome rather than on process. Scott Stowell’s Design for People is groundbreaking in its approach to design literature…the volume offers a sort of oral history as told by those involved with each project–designers, clients, interns, collaborators and those who interact with the finished product on a daily basis.” Read more

As a Public Information Specialist, I work with a team to oversee all print and digital communication at this city government agency. I also led the relaunch of the agency website. All content was reviewed and updated with clarity in mind, a priority mandated by City Hall. Read more


 

At the Department of Design and Construction (DDC), I also provide writing and editing for various in-house publications. Every publication requires a different work flow, and is often performed under tight deadlines. Read more


 

DDC hires numerous contractors to help build New York City's public buildings and infrastructure. To work for DDC, contractors must submit RFP and RFQ documents. Access to DDC's RFPs and RFQs can be found through a web application built by our IT team. I worked with IT to rewrite the copy for these pages, and untangle a very confusing, yet important process.

Museum of Modern Art Store

With a small team, I helped reestablish the brand voice for the MoMA Store through communicating deeper design stories of the Museum’s collection. This project required a vast amount of design research and descriptive copy. A workflow was established between myself and a project manager where we edited and exchanged documents over the course of nearly three months.

Weddings are one of the most popular topics on the Etsy Blog. In an experimental move, Etsy's editorial team decided to create a weddings-specific channel. I was invited back to Etsy to get this channel ready for launch. I transferred content into the new CMS, edited incoming contributions, and worked with the design team to troubleshoot front-end issues. Read more


Uniqlo

While working at Razorfish, I assisted a team overseeing the redevelopment of Uniqlo's online store. I worked on numerous editorial tasks, from revising Japanese-to-English copy, to brainstorming content for an online editorial channel.
