I bring meaning to my designs through user empathy and effective storytelling. 

As a former journalist, I'm always observing the world around me. I bring an editorial eye and deep understanding of people to create products that solve business needs and delight users.  I'm articulate about my design decisions and can persuade stakeholders by understanding how even the smallest product feature fits into a person's life.

I currently work as the Sr. Product Designer at Disney Parks and Resorts Digital. I am adept at every stage of the design process, including discovery, concepting, wireframing, prototyping, testing and delivery. I create low and high-fidelity prototypes in Axure and Framer that I test with users and iterate on the findings. I value a highly collaborative creative process — so much so that I've led workshops on the subject.
