I am passionate about:
Users and creating clean and cohesive designs. I am constantly rethinking the physical and digital workflows that I encounter in my day-to-day. I believe that the tools and ways we access and interact with information should be pleasant and simple.
A little known fact about me is:
I've dabbled in found-object art where I repurpose materials to build sculptures and mirrors. Closely following craigslist and stopping for the right curbside haul-out, I collect and reuse broken materials. I enjoy breaking down and rebuilding.

I'm graduating with a MS in Information & Human Computer Interaction in May 2015 and I'm eager to find the right employment opportunity. My process begins with contextual inquiry to identify opportunities for improvement. My iterative design process involves personas/scenarios, sketching, wireframing, and prototyping. By testing I am able to abandon less effective designs for better ones. Users are at the forefront of my process. Thoughtful and relevant presentation of content can make information more accessible and change the way people make decisions, which can have impacts of their own.
