Encounter Beauty

Through Encounter Beauty I combine my pursuit for beauty in the everyday with my love for research and education, to contribute reviews of products, places, and practices to live well.

Research & Education

I specialize in both historical and present-day marketplace research for branding projects, legal matters, and educational curriculum. As Co-Founder of Designer Camp, I am able to apply my years within the design industry to curate life changing experiences for young creatives.

Color Palette

Color is the first thing noticed. Color directs the emotion and theme of a brand, season, collection. I design color palettes and provide seasonal theme direction that will best tell your present story, and provide a lasting impression.

Brand Experience

Human interaction–an emotional sensory experience–is the way to make an impact and create lasting relationships. 
I will tell your story through creative strategy, environment design, collaborations, staff training, and experiential events. Audience love and loyalty is the aim.


I desire to continually learn from other cultures and contribute to the growth and development of individuals in every part of the world. I will “aim at heaven” and believe that “earth will be thrown in.”

I believe that relationships are the substance of life, that any tension creates strength, and that we were created to create.
