About Me

A common thread in my life and work has been understanding and helping people

Designer and Educator


I've designed and built websites from soup to nuts for a range of clients. In these projects, I've worn many hats, and have managed and executed web and software projects from ideation to execution and delivery.

I've been fortunate to have worked with a variety of clients including e-commerce, EdTech, healthcare, finance, nonprofit, agency, and HVAC. Currently, I'm looking to add value to an existing design team within a full time or contract-to-hire role. With a breadth of experience, I'm adaptable to just about any professional situation.

Prior to being a UX designer, I worked in a fast-paced digital media college as an instructor and lecturer. During this time, I taught audio editing, sound design, video production, and multimedia assembly. I still teach private lessons and perform locally from time to time.

I was practicing UX design well before I knew there was a name for it, both in classrooms and in personal interactions. This included an iterative mindset, gathering information and stakeholder feedback, and continually re-designing around input.

My passion for design is centered around being able to bring value to others, because I am genuinely curious to know how best I can be of assistance.
