About Me


What is Design Technology?

I work within multiple stages of the product lifecycle alongside Software Engineers, Data Scientists, and Product Managers. Naturally inclined to split my time between the technical and the creative, I’m an interaction designer, a coder, a visual designer, and an information architect all rolled into one.

  • ResearchDevelop an understanding of problems to be solved, getting at root cause issues using lean UX methodologies, including user testing and journey mapping.
  • RefineExplore UI solutions, wireframe and prototype while considering edge cases, unhappy paths, and accessibility needs. Stick with the tightest feedback loops possible to iterate intelligently.
  • BuildMap design to code and build out the front-end while working closely with engineers and stakeholders to continuously execute in an agile environment.

Multi-disciplinary designer/developer who’s most excited when building technology to make peoples’ lives better. Curious by nature and a collaborator at heart, I believe success lies at the intersection between business goals and user problems, when individuals band together to tackle tough problems.

My path to product design and software development has been non-traditional, moving through fashion, textile, and print design with intensive stints studying front-end development, UX Design, and javascript. I enjoy tackling new disciplines and pushing myself to think differently, believing that cross-boundary skillsets make me a better problem solver and more valuable team member. 

When not in front of my computer, you can find me advocating for the existence of the cake flight, powerlifting with The Armory barbell club, or staring at/petting/fawning over someone’s dog.
