I'm a UI & UX designer, Systems designer, and Visual designer based in Seattle, WA
I like solving problems through UI & UX + design systems.
The best way I could describe myself as a designer is that I’m a fusionist. The reason I use this term is because of my ability to think critically while working seamlessly across disciplines, blending together each of their best aspects, as well as opening my mind to imagination. I like to mix my expertly versed classical design skills with a generalist approach to technology, working across disciplines and interest groups. I come from a very diverse design education, so being a collaborator and communicator is super important to me as a designer. My act of fusing creates the ability to bring multiple disciplines together though communication and design to create great and new experiences.
Passionate about human-computer interaction, research, and aesthetics, I aim to apply my design thinking skills providing better user experiences and solving real-world problems. Two of the most important things that brought me to becoming a designer is that I can create but I can also solve problems. Through design work processes, I can help systematically extract, teach, learn and apply these human-centered techniques to solve problems in a creative and innovative way – in our designs, in our businesses, in our societies, in our lives.
I want to learn, to create, to teach, and to apply my designs to help solve problems.
