Hi, I'm Denise.

I’m a designer and placemaker with a strong belief in using design thinking to create systems change. I want to work on good teams to define spaces, processes, and precedents in the pursuit of a more beautiful and authentic world.

My hobbies include convening people to tackle big questions, sitting in vague space, basking in the small details, and seeking out those who offer different, radical, illuminating perspectives on things. (And watercolour.)

I like to keep the company of world-changers, and I’m drawn to doing work where there’s a possibility to tip scales, make movements, and make moments.

My skill set is one third human centered design; one third city-scale prototyping; one third creative leadership.
