Hey there, nice to meet you!

I’m Sara, a writer and product manager currently pursuing a Master's at Princeton Theological Seminary.

@work I most recently served as the Head of Product at Binkies 3D, where I spent a total of 3.5 years. Prior to that, I worked as a product manager, product owner, and front-end developer. I continue to use my technical and design skills for freelance projects and my own side projects.

@home I live in Princeton, New Jersey with my husband. On a sunny day, you can find me walking in the woods or enjoying the view from my balcony with a cup of black coffee and a good book.

@heart I love good people and great stories. My mission statement is to 'tell the truth with beauty.'

Select Portfolio Projects

Below is a selection of a few recent portfolio projects.

Advent Illustrated: Waiting 'Round the Wreath

I independently wrote, designed, and published a series of Bible journaling devotionals from 2015-2018, two of which were briefly the best-selling Bible study on Amazon. In 2022 I gave my favorite of these studies a print redesign to give it new life. The redesigned version includes the full original study with expanded devotionals and educational resources, as well as weekly videos and bonus content such as seasonal crafts and recipes.


I was hired to create the new brand identity and build the custom WordPress installation for a new PC (USA) church being started in Altadena, California. Service, cross-cultural fellowship, and integration with the local community are at the heart of this church’s identity, and the branding I created tried to encompass this through the use of color, pattern, and the logo.

Ally Kirk Lee

Ally contacted me to design her personal brand and build a custom WordPress installation when she started her job search. Over the course of several months, I met regularly with her to get a better understanding of her unique identity as a minister. Ultimately, themes of compassionate listening, creative ministry, and a connection to nature came to the forefront. I incorporated these into Ally’s branding, creating a minimalist site design that allowed her logo and nature photography to take center-stage. The logo has a hand-hewn feeling with shapes inspired by patterns in nature.

Call of Many Colors

Ministry Incubators commissioned me to design and develop an online version of their callings quiz for use during seminars. The quiz matches you to a unique combination of three ‘call types.' Playing on the idea of Joseph's coat of many colors, I chose to represent each call type with a unique color splotch. As a user takes the quiz, the color splotch guiding them changes shape and hue, as though discerning the call. A user's results are represented by a uniue "calling palette," a three-way Venn diagram that brings to mind the trinity knot or a stained glass window.

Little Lantern Shop

In 2021 I began selling 3D prints inspired by my undergraduate college's famous landmarks. My favorite aspect of this project was designing the brand identity and packaging for the shop, which included custom stickers, postcards, and a rubber stamp. The full scale of the project included product design and photography, branding and logo design, and building a website for users to track their pre-orders.

About the design for this page

The flowers on this page are taken from 17th century floral still lifes by two Dutch female artists: Maria van Oosterwijck and Rachel Ruysch.

When I began redesigning my portfolio, I knew I wanted a 'dark mode' design early on. In drawing inspiration, I started thinking about Dutch Golden Age painting, which is characterized by muted, moody colors. Working in the Netherlands in quite a different medium — one in which constant advances often render even last year's work dated — I liked the idea of utilizing this traditional work in a new way.

When doing research, I discovered that floral paintings were often the specialty of the few female painters of the era. I knew that in evoking the feeling of this genre of art, I wanted to celebrate these female artists and their beautiful work.

Many thanks to the Rijksmuseum and their Rijks Studio for access to high-resolution images of these paintings. To learn more about van Oosterwijck and Ruysch, head to the Rijksmuseum's website.
