About Me

My approach to user experience design is based in my background in art and design. I am a conceptual thinker who can pinpoint undiscovered connections and communicate solutions with strong visual language skills while making sure that projects always align with business goals.

In addition to my work as a UX designer, I maintain an active studio practice and am a 2019 recipient of an Artist Initiative Grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board.
