ABOUT ME

I am a UX designer that is design, data, and user driven. I've been trained in the sciences as well as the visual arts. I am passionate about communication and human interactions, putting the user at the forefront, and striving to create innovative solutions focusing on user interaction and experience.

In my design journey, I have experience designing for entertainment, hospitality, and software enterprise environments. Outside of my job, Iā€™m an avid reader. I love to travel, volunteer, try new foods, and go to meetups and festivals.
