About me

I'm a UX designer with a foundation in visual design. My past three years of experience includes creating robust and intuitive web apps for a variety of companies. I have taken broad problems and created simple, workable solutions that not only meet user needs but also align with business goals. I've owned all aspects of building a product, from initial user research to coordinating dev handoff. I am comfortable working on multiple client projects under tight deadlines without letting quality or rationale slide.
