About

I have a passion for creating beautiful experiences, from digital products to spaces we interact with everyday. I love how design can shape the way we live.

Based in Washington, D.C., I’m a user experience designer and researcher with more six years of experience working as a UX designer in the federal government. I’m committed to building more usable, accessible and even delightful experiences. I’m skilled in various research methods and have a background in interaction design, UX research, and journalism. I have a bachelor’s degree in media arts and design and interactive media from James Madison University and a master’s in user experience design and information sciences from Kent State University.
