about

 

Hi, I'm Samm — a passionate, multidisciplinary and strategic design leader working across the UX, UI and brand spaces. I currently live in the San Francisco Bay Area.

 

For the past nearly 15 years, I've worked in-house and agency-side to craft delightful brand experiences both on screen and off. Most recently, as an art director for Protiviti, an international business consulting firm, I've been instrumental in building out the global brand as well as up-skilling the design team in digita and brand and conceptual design.

 

Before Protiviti, I was an art director at Thelen, a small branding and web design firm, where I led the brand and/or web design of over 30 B2C and B2B brands. Before that, I created engaging and informative visual communications as a graphic designer at University of Central Oklahoma and as a designer/copy editor at St. Cloud Times, a Gannett entity.

 

Outside of work, my husband and I love, love, love dogs (especially our pug Stuart and RIP London) as well as exploring the endless adventures to be found in the Bay Area!
