I build brands that catch fire

Job Art Director + Owner / Pulp+Wire

Lives In Cumberland

I am a designer, business owner, and mother of two young children (and wife to a full time stay at home dad).

I am the founder and owner of Pulp+Wire and am very proud of the niche we have carved for ourselves, not only in Maine but nationally and internationally. My true passion is on the strategic and consulting side helping my clients align with their businesses and products to help them bring them to market authentically and with focused energy.

I believe in the power of intention, unbridled creativity and the strength of karma.

Why did you choose Portland? I grew up here, moved away to NYC and Boston and then returned 6 years later.

Who are Portlanders you admire and why? I admire anyone who tells it like it is. Portlanders are good at that.

What do you like to do with out-of-towners? Take them out to eat.

Where's your "happy place" on the peninsula? Mackworth Island

What's the most surprising thing about this city? That I can travel all around the US and always come home and feel amazing gratitude for what we have here.

What's your favorite indulgence and where do you find it? Oysters at Fore Street

What's the most under-appreciated place or thing in town? That's a secret.

Describe your perfect night—and the following morning—in Portland. Being at home with the family, then having brunch the next day at the Farmer's Table.

Do you have a serendipity spot? Where do you always bump into good people? Everywhere, Portland is that small. The right people always appear when you need them.
