I am a visual communicator and sustainability advocate with a drive to do work that matters. I believe in the potential of good design to tackle real-world problems - I want to work with teams and organizations that share my mission to effect meaningful change through creativity and innovation.
I am currently pursuing a Masters in Sustainable Design, with the aim of expanding my knowledge and expertise around sustainability issues, resilient design strategies, and communication techniques. I hope to bring these skills into my career and connect with like-minded partners and organizations.
I currently specialize in visual UI/UX design, with an emphasis on web accessibility. With my current position at UScellular, I have worked with a small but dedicated team to continually enhance the customer experience on our eCommerce shopping site, supporting initiatives such as improving site search and the shopping flow, transitioning through multiple rebrands and site evolutions, ushering in responsive design and compliance with WCAG standards, and working with high-profile brands such as Apple, Google, and Samsung.
Prior to my current position, I have attained a breadth of knowledge and skills throughout my career, spanning the realms of both print and digital design and photography. My experience includes:
• Branding/identity/logo design
• Responsive UI design
• UX strategy
• Photography (outdoor/nature, live events, interiors, products)
• Photo editing
• Illustration (digital/traditional)
• Infographic design
• Publication layouts
• Working knowledge of HTML, CSS
