It's now easier than ever to create work that inspires when you connect with the right people.

Let me tell you a little about myself

I am committed to creating accessible, inclusive designs that integrate sustainability and innovation into my work whenever possible. My passion for people allows me to explore strategic and creative solutions as it pertains to user experience. I believe that my combination of technical expertise, creative vision and commitment to collaboration make me an ideal candidate for any digital creative role.

About Me

As a multi-passionate digital creative, I specialize in web design, graphic design, user experience research and interface design. I studied Psychology in Florida and Graphic Design in Oregon. This education has allowed me to fully integrate my preferred right and left brain thinking processes within my current profession,  motivating me to this day. My passions outside of my professional life include environmental engagement through outdoor adventures and education, incorporating sustainable practices into every day routines, herbalism, foraging, supper clubs, creating music playlists, watching films and photography.


I bring over 7 years of experience on cross-functional design teams to the table. My portfolio showcases a range of projects and styles, and demonstrates my ability to tell compelling stories through my work.

Industries I have worked within include:
• Electric Vehicles
• Consulting
• Healthcare
• Education
• Retail
• Non-profits

Let's get personal

Why did I decide to be a designer?

I'm a 90's kid who grew up eating cereal and watching cartoons while crafting on Saturdays. Then the internet arrived and I spent my days learning Adobe Creative Suite and tailoring websites with graphics I designed and photographs that I took. As an adult, it just made sense ☺

What is my design process?

My design process is pretty standard because it works!
I've outlined my typical project flow in five steps:

Research – My favorite phase because we get to explore "Blue Sky" thinking. What is possible? What is out there? How can it be made new? How does this help people? How does this inspire? I dive into questions like these and more to really understand what is possible for each unique project.

Iterate – A crucial phase for any design is the iterative process where good and bad designs can exist until the most desired state is on the horizon. Success and satisfaction is achieved through trial, error and exploration.

Critique – It's important to check your ego at the door and realize that many perspectives are beneficial to a project as long as they are based on a shared goal. Change can be uncomfortable, but growth is a desirable state of being for both human and design.

Refine – This phase is metaphorically akin to sculpting a stone down to the fine details. We combine learnings from the previous stages to nurture our project into public existence.

Present – Time to share! Our journey is completing and now we get to see how our audience responds. The common hope is that they are enthused and helped from our work.

How do I deal with creative blocks?

Creative blocks are part of journey. When one hits, I usually watch films, go on road trips, visits museums, look through art books at libraries or photograph. On occasion, I read about topic I'm interested in learning more about or dive into creative writing.

What are my hobbies outside of design?

My passions outside of my professional life include environmental engagement through outdoor adventures and education, incorporating sustainable practices into every day routines, herbalism, foraging, supper clubs, creating music playlists, watching films and photography.
