As a hybrid interaction, visual, and UX designer, I help companies solve problems and envision a better future for their users. I have a passion for breaking down complex workflows and detailed systems into simple, easy to understand, and engaging user experiences. With 8 years of product design experience, I bring a unique perspective built from design agency craftsmanship and deep experience in tech startups during crucial growth stages in the Silicon Valley and NYC.
I graduated from the University of Southern California with a degree in Communication and a minor in Communication Design. After a few years in marketing, I decided to pursue a postgraduate degree in Graphic Design and New Media at Parsons School of Design.
8 years of product design at tech startups working with product managers, engineers, and cross-functional stakeholders in Agile environments
Expertise in end-to-end product development from ideation, wireframing, prototyping, user testing, and visual design delivery across web, mobile, & touchscreen devices
Demonstrated impact through shared user empathy, persona building, generative and evaluative user research, and uncovering the psychology behind human behavior
Lead with human-centered methodology and design thinking, sweating the details, and the pursuit for simplicity
Strong grasp of fundamental, formal design principles alongside a practical understanding of current design patterns, trends, and technology
When I'm not building user experiences, I enjoy spending time outdoors with my two rescue dogs Bento and Matcha. Inspiration and creativity strikes when I'm lost in nature, while traveling, or doodling freely.
I am also a houseplant enthusiast, occasional yogi, and a fan of two-person literary book clubs.
