I work hard for a future that doesn’t yet exist. Working on initiatives that make a change for individuals as well as the larger community is where I find drive to not only solve for, but to go beyond the expected. My passion for user-centered design provides me the methodologies and mindset needed to adapt and succeed in a constantly changing, and fast-paced world and to choose curiosity and empathy over all, every time. I have in-depth knowledge of user interface design methodologies, concentrated around web and mobile applications as well as product and service design to create powerful physical and environmental experiences.

 

In the past, I have delivered unique experiences at companies such as Hilton Hotels, Marriott International, Seed Strategy, SKAGEN, and Volcom Clothing.
