Here's a little about me:

I'm a Chicago born-and-raised, music loving DJ, cocktail concocting mixologist, part-time yogi, and full-time lover of all things design. When I'm not designing wireframes, prototypes, or snapping photos, you can find me walking aimlessly around Seattle, trying the best new sandwich in town, thrift shopping, or attending jazz shows with friends. 

Why UX?

I got my start in UX about three years ago when I became obsessed with the flaws in my old agency's culture. My goal was to make this larger company feel smaller, more intimate, more human. I set out to chat with and learn about as many colleagues as possible, later crafting these conversations into stories that were accessible company-wide. After releasing several volumes of narratives, over 200 people at the company were ultimately featured, and the impact was noticeable. Teams grew stronger, psychological safety increased, and my colleagues gained a renewed sense of appreciation for their work and the people in it. 

This love of problem solving led me to Seattle right after finishing my undergraduate degree, where I recently wrapped up my Masters in Human Computer Interaction and Design at the University of Washington. This program nurtured my passion for studying people, enhancing the lives of those around me through rich design solutions, and utilizing my visual eye to do all of these things.
