Meet me, in pixels and bytes.

 

 
I mobilize empathy, efficiency of design and economy of effort to craft solutions that enrich the lives of users by bringing harmony to the intersection of needs and information.

Constantly Curious

I am driven to understand how human behavior impacts the motivation to act and how I can build experiences around those key actions.

Systems Thinker

I approach UX/UI from a systems discipline. I am drawn to rethink the “how” and “why” of information flows — stepping back to understand the barriers and hallmarks of effective experiences within them.

Cross-Vertical Experience

I have worked in the education, technology and healthcare sectors architecting, optimizing and designing experiences for 5+ years. 

The pursuit of knowledge drew me cross-country from Minneapolis to the University of Washington where I earned a degree in Digital Media specializing in user experience research, strategy and design.
