Chicago Chapter


AIGA is the professional association for design is the profession’s oldest and largest professional membership organization for design. The Chicago Chapter is one of the nation’s largest chapters and well, it has my heart. Our mission is to unite, educate and advance the Chicago design community. I believe in the power of design to shape the world as we experience it and the responsibility of designers to act ethically and to strengthen one another.

I have served as an event volunteer, the Small Talks Co Chair, Programming Chair, VP of Programming and most recently, Co President. I have worked to produce rich community events and shape our programming strategy. Alongside my amazing Co President and Executive Director, I currently oversee the Chicago Chapter's activity to align with local community needs, AIGA National and our Chapter Mission.
