I’ve worked with a variety of clients from entertainment to financial services. But, no matter the client, it always comes back to engaging users through great design. That means figuring out the best way to communicate, organize and neatly group information together.
With a strong foundation in design systems, data visualization and prototyping, I have led UX design on many large-scale complex sites with thousands of pages for clients like Union Bank, Visa, Oracle, and UCLA.
I also volunteer with organizations such as Impact Hub and Code for America. An avid surfer and photographer most of my time spent outside the office is outdoors.
