Hello! My design practice is focused on assisting communities with sustainability planning, managing content for a Climate Action Toolkit and tracing alternative transportation. I spent a year in Sweden studying sustainability strategy and leadership to build on a degree in communication design. I am excited to share ways to close our production loops, acknowledge ecosystem services and design better. I look forward to reading your stories on design21.
