My background is in tech, sculpture, and psychology. After nine years in client services, I decided it was time to get ahead of the problem, by working on solving the design before it goes to market or redesigning based on user feedback. I'm a UX Designer because I like solving problems. I get frustrated with bad design in the digital and physical world and innately want to redesign it. Using UX strategies and methodologies I can deconstruct the project, research issues and trends, and create user centric designs with the clients goals in mind.
As an artist and human I have a love for green materials, recycling and work with a lot of texture that mimics nature. My glass work uses recycled glass to create organic forms that toy with your desire to touch what you know is dangerous even though it is beautiful. My ceramic work nods to my love of nature and my multi ethnic background. I sell my work by commission, on Etsy and at Mugi, and my pottery has been featured in US Weekly 2018. I'm an award winning exhibiting artist always looking to take on new endeavors and partnerships.
I love jigsaw puzzles, espresso, biking, and taking photos of patterns in nature.

Not sure where to begin? Let me help you figure it out. We can discuss where you are and options to move forward.
The key to strong UX design is listening to the user. Do you need to know if your idea will work? Is there another option? Let me do the research and analyze the results.
DESIGN & WIRE FRAMING
Mid-Fi or High Fi wireframes are an important step in providing deliverables to clients and developers.
Creating a clickable prototype for presentations allows you to provide a visual concept, test you current design, and hand off to developers.
