I'm a UX designer in Seattle, Next stop Austin!
I’m a west coast gal looking for new horizons. Alaska will always be home in my heart, having grown up there. I spent several years in the SF Bay area where I attended art school and I currently live in the fabulously rainy city of Seattle –with its best-kept-secret-summers.
I believe successful products are created iteratively and as the result of collaboration amongst cross functional teams. I enjoy the intersection of complex user problems and the reality of business. Design thinking is important to me and I'm specifically interested in perfecting my use of Design Sprints (as developed by Google Ventures) and design systems. The quicker my team can build a shared understanding the quicker we can ask the right questions which ultimately leads us to the right answers!
I have 8+ years of experience as a designer with a current focus in user experience and user interface design. Beginning with a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in graphic design from California College of the Arts (San Francisco), my professional background is thorough. My previous design roles have included visual design, logo/identity design, and traditional graphic design for print and web.
