If you're looking for an awesome addition to your User Experience (UX) team, you've come to the right place!
I am a creative thinker and problem solver. I use those skills as a User Experience Architect to design modern interfaces that seamlessly blend user needs with business requirements. I also enjoy evaluating and redesigning existing user interfaces, which my portfolio work reflects.

If you read this far, you may also be interested in all the other things I do for fun.
I read books (dystopian and psychological thrillers), watch crime shows, sew clothes, and play video games. I enjoy taking my dog on long walks through the neighborhood and getting covered in dog hair (check him out!).
