Experience

5 years of experience in a variety of fields from animation to responsive web design.

I am tasked with building positive and relevant user experiences through smart and simple design tailored to user needs that fulfill business objectives.

 

User research is at the core of my human-centered design process. Understanding user needs  and translating business objectives is vital to the success of my designs. Expert knowledge and visual design experience ensures my designs are elegant, effective and enjoyable.

 

A good design means that a product and it's content should be easy for the user to understand, and support user goals to encourage customer retention. My experience in user experience design, experience with building cross-channel user-flows, love of user research, years of visual design, and experience delivering effective pitch presentations give me a broad background and versatile set of skills.

Interests

Travel:
I enjoy travel, I love learning about how individuals live their lives and alternate views on the world fascinate me. The most enjoyable aspect of travel for me is meeting new people.

 

 

Music:

Melodies and rhythms move and inspire me,  I enjoy music from Classical to Dub-step depending on what the mood in the moment calls for.



 

Comedy:

Laughter is an excellent healer, a happy brain is a healthy brain. My work style i

very concentrated and highenergy and  comedy is my preferred way to recover fro

a stressful week.

 

 

Meditation:

Since stress can kill brain cells, meditation and relaxation are essential for rebuilding brains cells and revitalizing the soul.
