I'm a generalist designer with experience across platforms and devices. I've designed file management tools, data visualizations, science curriculum guides, social networks, professional development platforms, and contributed to design systems. I bring clear communication and attention to detail to user research, interface design, and collaboration with product and development teams. I'm looking to make a difference in people's lives through the smart application of design.
