About Me

I do user experience and interface design with a passion for taking complex problems and turning them into easy to understand and use solutions for everyone that perform on any device – from desktop to tablet to phone. Whether I am leading UX research, managing a production team, or working with clients, I explain technical issues in understandable terms to ensure design and development goals and milestones are clear and on track.

Having worked with design boutiques serving big-name clients as well as rapid-growth startups, I am comfortable in all aspects of design and production. I started my career equal parts designer/coder and believe keeping current with the latest front-end development techniques bestows the benefit of creating designs that are both visually appealing and technically efficient.

As a focused, yet multifaceted UX/UI Designer I am capable of quickly adapting to the role, project or challenge presented. Relying on my knowledge of user research, design systems, and development process, I heartily enjoy collaborating with my team to create valuable experiences for all users.
