I've been creating thoughtful digital products since 2005. I started my career in web design, focusing mostly on the visual aspect of design. Over the years, I learned the importance of Human-Centered Design and how including the human experience at each step of the design process results in better designed products.
My training includes a User Experience Designer certification from Akendi, and the successful completion of General Assembly's User Experience Design program. I also had an opportunity back in 2018 to attend Bridge School's Product Design program (hosted by Rangle). Over 155 designers applied, and I was one of only twelve students selected for the program.
I am currently looking for a full-time UI/UX, or Product Design position to continue my adventures in creative problem solving.
I love this industry! There are always exciting challenges, and I'm constantly learning new ways to solve problems. Not only that, but I am able to make a meaningful impact on people's lives. It's very rewarding. We also have a very supportive community that is always ready to help a fellow designer out for the betterment of our community.
My process is rooted in human-centered design, where I consider human values from the begining of the design process, and continue to involve and advocate for them throughout each step. I believe involvement from all stakeholders (not just clients) are critical to project success, and I make sure that design decisions are based on research findings with real humans.
If you’d like to talk about a project, or ask a question, feel free to get in touch with me!
I host a monthly meetup group for creatives who struggle with anxiety and depression. It's a safe space to share experiences and support one another. I am currently in talks with DesignX to make this group an official part of the community, and give back in a meaningful way.
Creative Mornings is a breakfast lecture series for the creative community. Each month I volunteer to facilitate the breakfast station, making sure our 200 attendees are well caffeinated and fed to get the most out of their event.
