ABOUT –
ABOUT –

I'm a product designer with a passion for designing experiences that bring humans together through the power of storytelling.

I'm currently living in Savannah, Georgia and surrounding myself with art and history as I search for my next adventure as a recent grad and emerging UX professional.

Techno music, sci-fi movies, amateur interior designing, festival fashion, ballet classes, hiking, small dogs, and the color pink.
(These are a few of my favorite things ♫)

Like a true Libra, I value good design in everything around me - from the apps I use to the doors I open (Thanks, Don Norman). But what makes good design "good"? I believe it starts with understanding users and the complexities of their stories. Every user is a storyteller when you ask them the right questions. By understanding their stories, we can begin to create usable and inclusive experiences for all.
