UX Design for Digital Experiences

User experience design, strategy, and engineering

I have a natural tendency to think and work across disciplines. That means I take a holistic approach with my digital experience projects—conducting research through user testing and metrics, building comprehensive information architectures, creating compelling visual design, crafting robust content strategies, and performing front-end development.

My interdisciplinary mindset was set on fire as an undergrad at The Evergreen State College where I concentrated on metalsmithing and behavioral psychology. These two areas, seemingly unrelated, continue to influence my work, as they taught me personal discipline, patience, and strategy as well as human motivation, behavior, and empathy.

I am excited about transforming the box—breaking out of the standard ways of presenting content and finding more dynamic ways to engage. I question convention while considering the underlying business objectives of each client to deliver something more than what is expected. This propensity has evolved into a UX (User Experience Design) and UI (User Interface Design) practice focused on memorable digital experiences.

I am especially drawn to work with organizations and businesses that foster creativity, ecological sustainability, and social justice. I enjoy cross-functional team collaboration, as it fosters innovation.

I combine design, usability, business savvy, and technological knowledge when approaching any project. Working with me means receiving comprehensive solutions that are user-friendly, attractive, well engineered, and strongly branded.
