I'm a senior-level UX designer & researcher creating intuitive, thoughtful experiences to empower, educate and engage.

I design applications, mobile apps, web sites and interactive education products across a wide range of organizations and industries, from Fortune 500s to start-ups.

I lead collaborations with project owners, architects, analysts and developers to build unforgettable user experiences. Creative problem solving is my specialty.

Let's build something incredible, together.

Listening is vital to the design process.

I interview experts, users and stakeholders, lead workshops and build surveys. From there, I synthesize what I've heard into business blueprints, user journeys, site maps and personas.

Informed by research, I produce wireframes and prototypes for user testing. I then create pixel-perfect layouts for easy hand-off to design systems and developers.
