I am a visual storyteller at heart and a recent graduate of the User Experience Design Immersion program at General Assembly.
At General Assembly, I learned how to become a much more thoughtful designer by keeping the user in mind at every step of the process. My goal is to not only create something aesthetically pleasing, but to produce a great product that emphasizes usability, accessibility, and delight. As a designer, I justify every decision through research, ideation, iteration, prototyping, testing, and implementation. Everyone’s opinion is a hypothesis for research. With UX Design you need to find the balance between the client's and user's needs.
I am a lifelong learner always creating and collecting inspiration from the world around me. My goal is to collaborate with a talented team and expand my skill set and knowledge of UX Design to create thoughtful and smart products.
A QUICK RECENT HISTORY
I graduated with a BFA in Illustration and worked as visual designer and production artist in the greeting card industry. In 2012, I moved from Chicago, Illinois to San Mateo, California and went full-time with running my own boutique stationery business, called Paper Parasol Press. You can find our cards in boutiques nationwide. I have a mid-1950s Vandercook Proof Press that weighs a little over 1,000 lbs and is named Olga. In a world of constant changing technology, she still runs beautifully with a little oil and love.
