I love to design products that innovate, solve business needs and delight users.
I'm an Atlanta-bred, Los Angeles-based UX strategist and designer who is always observing the world around me. Before landing in Southern California, I studied journalism at Northeastern University in Boston, worked at Andy Warhol's Interview Magazine in New York, and learned about Post-Impressionism in Paris.
Now I work as the Sr. Interaction Designer at Disney Parks and Resorts Digital. I am adept at every stage of the UX process, including discovery, wireframing, prototyping, testing and delivery. I create low and high-fidelity prototypes in Axure 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.
Past clients include Disney Studios, Toyota, SpinMedia, Monrovia Plants, Central Desktop, Unicode Consulting, MUSE School, Mental Training Inc., and The Tech Museum of Innovation.
