About me

I’ve worn many hats in my career – UX, UI, product, motion, research, content, information architecture, et cetera, et cetera. My true passions lie in design systems, motion prototypes, data science, & deep thinking of end-to-end user flows.

 

I’m a strong believer that real magic happens when design, product, and engineering partner together (GASPPPP) to get sh** done. We design folk are pretty dang skilled at identifying user problems and opportunities too. 

 

Life quote: “If you are going to do something half-ass, don’t bother doing it at all”. Thanks, Mom and Dad.
