With a diverse background in digital and tangible experience design, I thrive in ever-changing environments and complex problem spaces. Though the tools I use are dependent on the problem at hand, the design methodologies I leverage are tried and true.
USER-DRIVEN AND HUMAN-CENTERED
Design can make a difference
I've seen it happen
My goal is to remove barriers and facilitate a usable, rewarding, and delightful user experience, whether it be for broad user-bases (Verizon Wireless customers), hungry burrito-lovers (Moe’s Southwest Grill), or pet owners seeking premium quality food (Rachael Ray Nutrish).
I’ve also seen how design can make a positive impact for underrepresented communities and nonprofits, evidenced in my work with the Georgia Aquarium, the GCCA, the Marcus Autism Center, the Fulton County Department of Health, and the HWCAC.
