I live and work in the fabulous Minneapolis-St. Paul area and grew up in Chicago. I've years of experience in nonprofit management and community organizing. My grad degree was counseling psychology. I've enjoyed learning about visual processes (graphic facilitation, scribing, and visual recording) with Christina Merkely of Shift-It.com, Cara Holland of Graphic Change, Heather Martinez of Let's Letter Together, Brand Agerbeck at Loosetooth.com, The Grove, and at the IFVP Conferences,
As a graphic recorder, I put thoughts to paper using a mix of images, words and color so people can benefit from seeing their words made concrete. From neighborhood discussions to company training sessions, incorporating large visual records into your event or meeting increases recall, excitement, creativity, and sharing. I will support the work you do by creating a mural sized visual that helps clarify vision and goals, simplify a work plan, or simply make a lively record of an important conversation. It's a productive way to work (and fun too!). See examples of my work at www.avisualspark.com.
