I'm a Product Designer, UX Designer with a Master's in HCI through the University of Washington's MHCI+D program, and passionate about creating positive change through thoughtful design, building relationships, and understanding people. I love working with companies to create products that continue to get better through research and iteration. In addition, I have an extensive background in visual design with additional experience in front-end web development.
In my spare time, I enjoy being a part of the UX community in Seattle. I'm currently involved in the University of Washington's MHCI+D community of current students, alumni, and industry advisors. I'm also an advisory board member, guest speaker, critique, and facilitator of the University of Washington's PCE UX and Visual Interface Design certificate program.
I'm the Block Watch Captain for my neighborhood, an avid urban farmer, a wedding photographer, and I love hiking the PNW. In the past, I've enjoyed being part of community organizations such as Toastmasters, the West Seattle Running Club, Boealps, and West Seattle Co-op Preschools.
