ABOUT ME

I grew up right here in Seattle, and have benefited greatly from the Northwest spirit of do-it-yourself innovation. Art, music, and writing are a major part of my life. I support local artists and also travel extensively to share in these experiences. I also make art myself, and take great pleasure in novel uses of materials. Even when my ‘audience’ is just three small dogs, I like how artmaking cultivates my design sense and keeps my brain activated and oriented toward nonverbal and symbolic communication. I studied fine art in college and later moved into illustration, then digital art, which eventually led me to UX Design.  When I’m not working, I like to share a good meal with friends, preferably outside on my sunny, east-facing deck.


MY WORK

Like most UX designers I wear many hats. Design, research, team communication – I like it all. I've worked for fast-paced start-ups, rapidly growing companies, and the federal government. I tend to specialize in research and I'm pretty good at mapping out problem spaces and working with stakeholders and other designers to expose potential obstacles. I have an aptitude for turning raw data into actionable information – I have a knack for bridging the distance between a problem and a working solution.


My design career started years ago when I began doing small illustration jobs.  I taught myself how to use Illustrator and Photoshop, and began to explore graphic design and eventually web design.  In the spring of 2014 I received a M.S. in Human-Centered Design and Engineering from the University of Washington. Since then I’ve been working in UX. I’ve done projects ranging from the very human-centered work of designing an app to help ease depression for combat veterans, to the highly technical bottom-up redesign of an enterprise software system, to illustration work making elegant and effective infographics for use in active military duty. I love how UX design unites aesthetics, problem-solving, and real-world applicability. UX design has opened up whole new vocabularies for me, and I love to dig deep into a challenging project.
