But wait, there’s more!

I believe in the power of great storytelling, through words and design.

As someone who loves asking questions and discovering what makes people tick, I bring a seasoned journalist’s curious and empathetic mindset to the world of digital product design and development.

I’m always striving for a better understanding of human behavior and needs, and I’m excited to make a career transition into UX Design.
