About Me

I support businesses in the creation and maintenance of interactive, human-focused products and websites.

My roles include user research and design. Open to all opportunities, I especially enjoy projects with complex functionality, a B2B or B2C audience, and responsive or mobile needs. I am comfortable getting into the weeds and willing to take on a challenge.

In my personal time, I’m always learning.

I take advantage of opportunities to sign up for courses available on many online education platforms, as well as seminars and talks based on my interests.

Sometimes I think learning more about people is a good way to get better at designing for humans. I also think it’s a good way to help me keep my mind engaged.
