I got my start in design while interning at a company that had a need for a motion graphics designer. I was intrigued by the complexity of design software and what it could achieve, and in a few years, I was the lead motion graphics designer on a network TV show.

Now, I’m a multidisciplinary designer with over six years of experience. I focus on creating useful, usable, and engaging experiences for users in the realm of the digital world. I've worked for a variety of companies where I've created engaging interfaces and experiences.

I enjoy gaining insight into users and basing my designs on user needs. At the same time, I pay close attention to the needs of businesses and stakeholders. I also love visual design that complements the framework of user experience design.
