About me

bits & pieces

“Perfection is achieved not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.” – Antoine de Saint-Exupery

I am a visual designer that has recently relocated from Austin, TX to Seattle in exploration of new job opportunities. My background is in traditional graphic design but I’ve been working primarily in UX/UI design for the past 3 years. What motivates me in user experience design is the opportunity to study user’s behaviors. I practice user centered design principles basing design decisions on user needs and business goals. I enjoy the process of solving people’s everyday problems and am passionate about finding those solutions. I believe good design should be natural, attractive and easy to use.

My recent positions have been with tech companies, design agencies, and start-ups. I’m experienced with working in fast-paced environments and collaborate well with others. Comfortable and capable in Agile and waterfall development environments, with experience as both an onsite and remote team member. One of the things that I love about design is that it’s an amazingly vast field to work in and I want to branch out as far as I can go. I believe to excel in this field you must be constantly learning and willing to try new things.

My specializations include user interface design, user experience, design lead, interactive, front-end development, branding, identity, information design, digital, print, and website design.
