I'm just your friendly neighborhood experience designer.
I believe that good design is intuitive and not only aids the user but the business too. I enjoy taking complicated problems and turning them into fun and simple solutions.
I'm currently studying as a graduate student at Virginia Commonwealth University (Brandcenter) and fortunate enough to work with many local and international businesses on a freelance basis. Comfortable doing any screen-based designs and always excited to implement motion graphics.
I'm really interested in origami and paper crafts
Video games always have a special place in my heart since Sonic for the Dreamcast
I used to play Lacrosse and Field Hockey. In high school, our lacrosse team went undefeated for 2 years.
I love those old 'boring' books that everyone hated reading in high school. (Virginia Woolf and Ralph Waldo Emerson are my favs)
I have an oddly large amount of knowledge about ocean creatures. Ask me about sea slugs.
My design process is the cumulative nature of how I deal with problems and challenges. I begin my process with an empathetic ear. This involves uncovering the business problem, insights, affordances, and constraints through my UX methods.
Once I've defined the problem and developed a strategy from the information I've gathered, I begin creating an intuitive design. This follows the path of creating simple and concise designs that help create the experience for the user. This is done through prototypes, wireframes etc.
Finally, my design process is iterative. I'm constantly learning new information through testing and re-testing my designs with their target audience. After the iterations are complete and the product has been launched, I take time to reflect on the product and my journey to its completion.
