With 5+ years of graphic design experience, focusing on design detail and determining user impact, I've enjoyed working collaboratively with designers, researchers, and product managers to understand users’ needs and behaviors.
My skills include translating my research findings into designs that provide effective, efficient experiences to users by producing sketches, wireframes, and prototypes that facilitate the communication of solutions to clients. I utilize multiple tools to do so, including Photoshop, Illustrator, Indesign, Invision, Balsamiq, Gliffy, and Axure.
I am passionate about working to solve complex design problems for web interactions and creating meaningful and efficient user experiences from complex data. I enjoy bringing others strengths together and working collaboratively to solve these problems.
When not working on projects, I can be found eating my way through Austin's food scene or attempting to keep the plants on my patio alive. I bleed Texas State maroon and gold (Eat 'Em Up, Cats!) and have a deep appreciation for traveling and adventure.
I'm excited to do more great work. And drink more wine.
