Expertise.

User Experience Design

I like to think of UX as us guiding the user though a labyrinth quickly and effortlessly. All the complexity is hidden from the user behind a well designed, intuitive path that makes the user feel at ease and safe. 

User Interface Design

I aim to create a fun, visually stimulating experience for the user, while tying in the company’s brand as I help them develop their vision.

Design Thinking

With some sticky notes, a whiteboard and coffee I can tackle any user issues and needs. Getting teammates with other expertise in a room and facilitating a quick brainstorming session is what I'm all about. 

Branding Design

I am a true believer that every product and company needs an identity. A company's beliefs and mission is what can set them apart from all competitors. Let's find out your "why" together! Checkout my Branding Work

Design Research

What? Who? Where? When? and Why? To answer these I use tools such as user interviews, creating personas, journey mapping, competitive analysis, competitors analysis and user testing.

Collaboration

Growing up in a big family has prepared me for all types of collaborative environments. I enjoy having a team to share ideas with, get feedback from, and when time allows have a little ping pong match with.

Let's make it happen.

If you are in for some fun and productive collaboration, I am eager to hear from you!
