I'm a generalist, experienced designing for the web, iOS, Android, and macOS. Among other things, I've designed file management tools, data visualizations, a science curriculum guide, a social network, a professional development platform, and contributed to a design system. I bring clear communication and attention to detail to user research, interface design, and collaboration with product and development teams.
