Who Am I?

What I’m Currently Doing & Past Experience

Currently, I am working as a Senior User Experience Designer at Boeing on the training and professional services innovation team. I am currently the primary liaison between UX and engineering, supporting both in-house and offshore development teams, Product Owners, Product Managers, and Business Objectives. I have over 15 years under my belt in the design industry and have held various roles in my craft. However, my sweet spot in User Experience is interaction design. I love utilizing my entire skillset as an end-to-end designer while being able to validate my designs through code and implementation. I am passionate about the relationship between research and analytic.  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 and easy to use. 

Education and Expertise

Due to the ever growing and changing design trends, the industry for a working professional such as myself seems to be headed towards hybrid UI Designer/ Developer roles; therefore, I am currently obtaining my certificate in Mobile Web and Desktop Application Development through South Seattle Community College. My program will be completed in 2019. I obtained my Bachelor’s degree in Web and Multimedia Design and Development (2013) and my AAS in Digital Design (2006). Why? Because there aren’t any Masters Degrees in UX Design. My end goal is to be working in a hybrid UX Designer/ UI Developer role!  My areas of expertise include: senior level knowledge and experience with web applications and mobile design, product design, UI design, front-end development, team leadership, and project management. I am experienced working with companies of all sizes: from small start-ups to large corporations requiring complex web applications using the latest industry standard in CSS, HTML, and JavaScript.
