My multi-disciplined skill sets allow me to jump into any role or task, whether it’s research, wireframing, icon designs, branding, mockups, design for print media, or even drawing unique and charming illustrations. I enjoy leading small teams while working closely with developers, SMEs, and stakeholders alike. My passion is identifying and solving real consumer and business problems while asking the right questions to create elegant user-centric web and mobile applications.
