I'm someone who loves to solve complex user experience and technical problems and flawlessly communicate designs to developers and engineers. I focus on product design, design systems, and accessibility.
I'm not someone who dazzles customers to improve marketing or sales. By nature, my designs are predictable and simple because I want users to understand my products the first time.
My mother is an artist, and I’ve excelled at art since I was five. When I reached college, I chose graphic design as my focus and started to design websites for departments around Oregon State University.
For the last twelve years I've been responsible for designing, building, implementing, and maintaining web applications. Recently, my focus has been creating and managing design systems.
Inefficiencies in workflow (I’m a big proponent of design systems), and a desire to learn (that's why I earned the Google UX Design Professional Certificate).
We are designing for people, not just ourselves. That's why I always try to bring the user into decision-making discussions. Empathizing with people helps you better understand them, and the problems they face when interacting with your product.
