“This isn’t only about making products. It’s about crafting great experiences.”


Design is an all-encompassing umbrella that can be applied to anything from a sophisticated digital interface to a doorknob. This idea invigorates me and drives my creativity and imagination to lofty heights, be it through an exciting piece of technology or something quirky and innovative in a video game. As an event producer and designer, I love inspiring creativity in others, as well as finding solutions for tricky challenges.

After years of growth as an event producer and designer, every lesson I learned revolves around this grand philosophy: in order to get to the heart of an idea, one must go back to the beginning to truly understand each thought and decision that goes into a finished product. My expertise in beginning concepts, wireframes, and prototypes, as well as creating tradeshow booths, developing brands and polishing finished products makes me a jack-of-all-trades in the realm of experience design. This flexibility keeps my ideas fresh and makes me excited to go to work every day. I am also a people person, which makes communicating with clients, testers, and teammates an enjoyable aspect of my job.
