I partner with creative professionals to design better experiences, spaces, and products.

I came to user experience design as a natural development of design work I was already performing, working for and with graphic & web designers, interior designers & architects, film/tv directors & producers, artists, writers, online community managers, and event producers.

My goals are to
• understand & empathize with the client & user
• work collaboratively & independently, as needed
• communicate effectively
• provide information researched with exacting standards
• improve processes & interactions
• increase happiness by reducing & removing friction
• make the world a better place through thoughtful, beautiful design.

My methodology includes
• stakeholder & user interviews • content audits • questionnaires & surveys • usability evaluations • experience maps • site maps • user flow diagrams • mind maps • sketching • outlining • storyboarding • wireframes • paper prototyping • visual mockups • 3d modeling • usability & A/B testing • multiple ideas & iterations that arrive at the best solution.

In my free time, I'm a cinemaphile, comedy connoisseur, writer. I like to do 2 impossible things every day. I landed a 5-month project management role on Skywalker Ranch, and I'm still thrilled about the experience, two years later.

Fun Fact: I've been struck by lightning... twice.
