about me

a visual storyteller -- born and raised in the midwest

Life isn't about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.

My Experience and Philosophy

With over 7 years of experience as a UI/UX Designer, I have experience working in both waterfall and agile methodologies. I follow user-centered design approaches and believe in iterative design. I value collaborative and insight-driven approaches. I advocate simple and intuitive user interfaces. I strive to make people’s lives easier and more enjoyable through engaging and meaningful digital experiences.

My Story

Born in the small town of Peru, Illinois, I was introduced to art and design at a very young age by my mother and Busia. Growing up, I was always interested in expressing my creativity. In high school, I realized I wanted to further my creative abilities so I decided to attend Columbia College Chicago.

In December 2010, I graduated with Cum Laude honors from Columbia College Chicago with a BFA in Graphic Design. During my time at CCC, I was mainly focused on print design. However, shortly after graduation, I landed a job at a global IT consulting firm as a Visual Designer. I am currently working as a Senior UX Designer based in Chicago, Illinois.

I have an extensive background in UX consulting with experience designing for both B2B and B2C outputs. I conceptualize, sketch, wireframe, design, and assist in development of all kinds of digital experiences. And I love every minute of it.
