About

Since starting my UX career in 2005, I have worked for a wide variety of businesses, industries, and organizations. I rely on my knowledge and expertise in usability, design, and programming to support businesses in the creation and maintenance of interactive, human-focused products and websites.

Origin Story

In college, I discovered an undeveloped interest in the intersection of people, technology, and information. I attended graduate school to develop my skills. After graduation, I pursued my interest and have been working ever since. I currently live and work in New York City.

Accomplishments

After pursuing a dance career, I did a 180 into a completely new field. Overall, I attribute my educational and career accomplishments to my initiative, adaptability, good communication skills, friendliness, curiosity, and my drive towards self-improvement.

My passion for continuing education and personal growth has only grown over the years. I’m a bit obsessed with online learning as a resource for self-improvement. Feel free to ask me anything about online courses!

At Work

I work as full-time employee and I support existing teams as a freelancer or contractor — often, but not always, through a staffing agency.

For all roles, I typically work onsite, but I have experience working with distributed and remote team members.
