About

Life’s an adventure; a possibilities machine. There’s a surprise under every rock and I’m flipping boulders.

Design is an all encompassing umbrella that can be applied to anything from a sophisticated digital interface to a door knob. 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 a gamer and designer, I love the creativity tabletop and video games inspire in players and how problem solving around outside-the-box scenarios translates well into everyday life.

After years of growth as an UX/UI 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 user interfaces, developing brands and polishing finished products makes me a jack-of-all-trades in the realm of 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.
