I’m a San Francisco-based user experience designer.
Veterinarian, paramedic, and interior designer were some of my initial career paths. Ultimately, my passions steered me into a design career that started with a seven-year stint in the field of Interior Design. While working in Interior Design, my passions grew into a drive to pursue a career in user experience design.
I’ve been fortunate to work for both large companies and boutique agencies, experiences that helped shape my skills in a multitude of roles: web developer, project manager, art director, writer, photographer, and even party planner and bartender.
Right brained or left brained? Organized or creative? With me, it's all of the above. I solve design puzzles by balancing usability and accessibility with smart, fresh, eye-catching designs.
Since starting my professional career over 10 years ago, I have found my passion in user experience design and visual design while wielding knowledge in content strategy and creation. Client projects I’ve had opportunity to work on include First Republic Bank - Consumer & Corporate online banking, Visa, Shapiro Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, Osmo Nutrition, Murad, Westcor, and a whole slew of other clients. I love to make things that matter.
