I am a passionate designer, artist, and educator with degrees in studio art (graphic design/photography) and art education. My master's experience allowed me to combine my love for art and my deep intrigue for how humans understand and take in visual information. Coming into the UX field was the next logical step for me. With my varied experiences, the one through-line has always been "people first". As a designer, I strive to create thoughtful, functional, and inclusive experiences that have a positive impact on the user.
Sitting still isn't in my nature. When I am not working I find myself constantly doing something - whether it is wandering around finding abandoned structures to photograph, teaching myself how to knit, or perfecting my at-home barista skills.
