UI Designer. Art Director. Illustrator. Optimist.

I was introduced to the power of empathy early in life. As a child with physical limitations, I was compelled to understand other’s challenges; to feel their versions of pain, joy, love, and biases… I needed to connect on a deeper level so that I could provide better help to those suffering. This led me to a life of creativity. Whether it be through dance, painting, or designing — I am fueled by taking a feeling or thought and putting it into a visual or tangible form of interaction.

I paint and sketch constantly but my heart lies in creating the user’s journey — which is where my desire for empathy really gets to shine.

Though my strong suits are visual design, I believe that the user experience journey starts with the brand strategy itself. It is here where I am focusing on growing. It is important to me to be involved early on in whatever project I am brought into — even if the brand has already been established. My goal for each project is to be more than just a pixel pusher who creates a functional website; I work diligently to create truly memorable experiences for users that extends beyond a brand’s web presence.
