About C'est Moi

As a creative manager and designer,
my job is to problem-solve.

Uncomplicated? You betcha. Making things simple is my modus operandi—turning something complex into something easily understood, readable and clean. I apply this method to everything I do—at work, at home, in my relationships, grocery shopping, organizing my cardboard box collection—everything. Keeping the edges tidy and letting go of the non-essential details is the first step to finding the free space to really express yourself. If you can’t list it in bullet points or define it with an appealing border, I’m probably not going to pay attention anyway.

 

LONGER VERSION

In an un-air-conditioned hallway, in a rural elementary school, I was told through the gritted, yellow teeth of my fifth grade teacher that I was, in no uncertain terms, the class clown. This label was spat at me as sternly as proper hallway volume and etiquette would allow, after what we will call “an innocent incident” during a water break involving unsupervised trips to the end of the one-hallway school where the water fountains resided. I was shocked. Surely this auspicious title should have been bequeathed to my goofy, and more than occasionally clever classmate, Darb (names have been changed to protect the innocent). Mr. Nnud however, was emphatic that I was indeed the definitive, wisecracking cut-up of the entire 26-student, fifth grade class.

What was meant, most likely, to straighten me into a life of sobriety and turn me into a studious elementary school student, resulted in quite the opposite effect, and merely fostered my comedic appetites. Years have passed. Maturity has sunk in. Responsibilities bore down, but I believe that 92% of that jocular fifth grader still resides in me. The other eight percent has created 94% of this site. Enjoy!

 

STREET CRED

“Dana has been tremendous for our organization and has kept us current in our quest to best use our information “for good”. We have received a plethora of compliments and positive comments, not only from our board but also from our supporters. We love Dana, her work, her attitude, her playfulness, and her enthusiasm for the job and her ability to keep MHM beautiful.” —Mark W. Fulton, President Mission Haiti Medical, Inc.

“The Cat in the Hat said it best, that “It’s fun to have fun, but you have to know how.” More to the point, I think we all understand when something works visually after we’ve seen it, but when you’re starting from scratch, it’s incredibly difficult to explain to someone what that might look like, especially when you’re not really sure yourself. Dana is one of the best at taking the shine you have for your brand and transferring it into something you can show people. It doesn’t hurt that she’s one of the most warm and hilarious people you might ever have the good fortune to meet.” —Matt Wade, Fairview Farms Owner

“Dana is bomb.” —Random person, Washington Street & Capitol Avenue
