A few words on who I am
About me, by me
I am an animation-loving designer & photographer, product person, and listen-to-music-on-repeater. While I have a strong belief in design systems and an endless desire for visual polish, I do my best work using design thinking to move products from uncertainty and assumptions to clarity and solutions.
I was born and raised in in easygoing California, but thrive in fast-paced environments where we can prioritize being able to ask the right questions over always knowing the right answer.
When my laptop is closed, I am either somewhere with good food, or somewhere with a good view and my camera (but most likely also with food nearby). I dabble in photography and will happily geek out with you about anything. I've shot on Pentax, Nikon, Canon, and Sony... so I won't be offended which you prefer.
What am I up to now?
I'm currently tackling enterprise SaaS problems in the philanthropic sector at Fluxx. Grant funders and their respective recipients enable some of the most important work on the planet, which is why I couldn't deny the the chance to work on empowering them to amplify the good they can do in the world.
B.A. Design from the University of California, Davis
My formal education in traditional visual/graphic design from UC Davis set me up with a world-class foundation in universal design principles such as typography, hierarchy, and color theory.
Although I am always learning through a variety of mediums, having a mastery of visual design allows me to focus on the UX strategy and product challenges while effortlessly elevating the level of polish in products I am involved with.
