Story

perfecting visual cogency

RIGHT NOW

A visually driven, analytical creative, I'm equally skilled in creating beautiful glossy user experience and advising on and executing strategy. While holding over a decade of experience creating editorial and consumer facing experience for women, I'm also versed in the technical aspects of digital design and always working to perfect visual cogency of ideas, projects, and brands.

I'm currently based in San Francisco after founding my own beauty startup, Stash Beauty, and consult fashion and beauty companies on their brand, digital and market strategy. Companies I've worked with include: Vogue, W, New York Magazine, The Cut, Allure, Estée Lauder, Moda Operandi, NARS, MAC cosmetics, Net-a-Porter, Gap Inc. and more.

BIO

Born in New York and raised in Washington, I started my career at Vogue magazine after completing a B.A. in Art History from Scripps College and was honored as its Most Outstanding Recent Alumnae in 2012. 

 

Technology 

If it doesn't exist, build it

Most Recently

I founded and developed the concept of Stash Beauty. It was a successful proof of concept using AI machine learning to track and anticipate consumer behavior — once the user synced her makeup bag and medicine cabinet, the app used predictive logic that anticipated the rate by which she would use her favorite shampoo or mascara—  as well as suggest new products to try based on its proprietary algorithms.

It integrated this complex understanding of the consumer with multiple inventories and social platforms to create a powerful and seamless beauty shopping experience where consumers could buy immediately from the best social beauty content and also keep track of all of the products they were using.

In the early ages of 90's INTERNET

Before the internet was fully indexable, searchable and truly networked, my idea of fun in school was teaching myself to code and design elaborate websites, hacking my dad's computers more than once, and making "web rings" with other girl coders.
