Efficient and attractive user-centered designs that increase adoption and loyalty utilizing modern design concepts.
Utilizing my skills in UX, UI, and graphic design to develop feature-rich applications that solve complex client requirements.
Intuitive, delightful, and compelling solutions built on foundations of business and user needs.
Attractive, innovative, and functional designs created for every stage, from prototyping to final product.
In my childhood, I designed spaceships with crayons and construction paper. As an adolescent, superheroes came alive with colored pencils and a sketchpad. As I have gotten older, I have since transitioned to graphics, photographs, and application designs using pixels on a computer screen. My childhood passions have blossomed into a career that I love and I welcome the opportunity to expand on the knowledge I have gained thus far.
Good designers have a keen eye for fixing things that are broken, unique backgrounds and experiences, and are responsible for how products look, feel, and behave.
Great designers are first and foremost curious about the world around them, constantly striving to fill the gap between poor design and usability. Great designers draw upon their observations of the world around them and then improve design standards as advocates for the user.
Whether observing human behavior, a poorly thought-out design, or creating a new idea altogether, a great designer must understand the context of the problem and produce a solution that is clean, concise, and beautiful.VIEW EXPERIENCE
My goal is to make things people desire - things they will see, interact with, and love, knowing it was created down to the last pixel for them to enjoy.
I work with account managers, designers, data analysts, and other developers to ensure client-specific needs are met, including determining the optimal solution for the client, laying out workflows/paths in the application, all while adhering to project milestones and timelines. I train clients on application usage prior to launch. I take part in independent continued education to stay current with upcoming web standards and new technologies. I mentor junior developers, sharing industry knowledge and best-practices.

Collaborated with others to complete complex and diverse projects in a time-sensitive atmosphere.
My career to this point has been a combination of purpose and thoughtful planning, and in order to continue to succeed and advance in my field, a concrete educational background encompassing the knowledge needed to navigate the business world is key.
My undergraduate degree from Indiana University blends my design background with marketing, advertising, and brand awareness that has helped me make significant strides towards achieving my overall career goals.
I have applied this education to my graduate work and in conquering even greater challenges with the help of fully developed managerial, marketing, and operational skills attained during the program.
