Since starting my journey in the field of human computer interaction, I’ve developed an insatiable hunger for learning how to craft the most efficient and pleasing experience for users. I consider myself a UX generalist but I especially enjoy creating personas, mockups and prototypes. I pride myself on having the ability to pay attention to details while never losing sight of the overall picture. As a collaborator, I value open communication and champion a democratic process towards selecting the perfect solution for users. EDUCATION
