Designer For Hire
I gain the best insight into desired solutions and while keeping business need and budget in mind to come up with a scalable, affordable outcome within scope.
I obsess about interactions that will delight customers and tend to geek out on details. I have no problem stepping outside of the box and out of my comfort zone to design in new ways.
I think across multiple channels and have a sharp eye for visual design. I can also create beautiful experiences while leveraging existing styles in new and creative ways.
I seek out analytics and data from user testing, focus groups, and other research to guide future decisions and iterate on current concepts to come up with the best solutions.
A little bit about me
I believe in the refining power of simplicity and elegance through the fusion of logic and creative inspiration. I embrace the "human factor" in design and create experiences that tell stories which are clean, simple to use, and easy to navigate. I lead projects, advocate for the user, improve experiences, and love working in a collaborative environment.

I’ve always known what I wanted to do with my life and have strived towards my goal with every fiber of my being. For the past 14 years, I’ve been a visual designer, web designer and UX designer. During this time, I have loved it with all of my heart and soul; however, something was[…]
I’m so done with this election. I keep my opinions to myself, unless asked. I will listen to yours, I will still love you no matter who you do or don’t support. Want to vote red, blue, green, libertarian, independent or for Harambre!?!??! I could literally care less. Just get out there and vote and[…]
Humans and human emotions are something I don’t think I can ever quite understand. Just when I think I know someone, BOOM, here comes reality, and I come crashing down. On some levels this is okay because we are all different, we all have expectations, and needless to say expectations vary from person-to-person. That doesn’t[…]
Some inspiration: I can’t think of a time I have had such intense clarity amidst confusion. Writing is very therapeutic for me but it doesn’t typically come in moment of happiness, as it’s just not typically a time where I struggle with words or feel I need to get them out. I love how this[…]
Being unemployed is definitely a series of ups and downs. Especially when unemployment income isn’t enough to make ends meet, you are 22 days late on rent, and you are the soul supporter of your family. To say I am stressed is an understatement. I have been unemployed since the middle of June and there[…]
Many of you know our family has very recently experienced a few tragic losses in the past month and I have been volunteering my time and services. Some of the things I have done include: designing a memorial website, fundraising, and creating photo slideshows for memorial services. It’s hard to even function when a person[…]
I am VERY thankful tonight for way-back machine. I thought I had lost approximately 5 years of artwork, digital design, photography and poetry due to a corrupted database. Thank you technology. In light of getting my work back here’s a poem I wrote, (that in later edits morphed into song lyrics). I’d love to team[…]
Today was one of the hardest things I have ever witnessed but also one of the most humbling. I saw humanity today, I saw compassion. There were hugs given to strangers those same strangers came together as family. As I sit back and reflect on the past 13 hours, so many things go through my[…]
Not hiring someone based on weight is shallow at best and discriminatory at worst. But a lot of employers don’t want to take the risk of hiring someone who may have major health problems down the road or may not have the energy to, as is printed on most applications…..”fulfill the duties required without special[…]
