I’ve dabbled in digital design since 1998, when I was first exposed to Bryce and Adobe Photoshop 3. I later studied multimedia design and expanded to a variety of interests from painting to Macromedia Director Lingo. I took a particular interest in color theory, user interface design, and HTML/CSS. Since then, most of my projects have covered UI and visual design.
Outside of work I enjoy hiking the Pacific Northwest alone or with friends, and traveling. My respite has always been yoga and electronica music, sometimes together.
In April 2018 I was certified in the Akendi CXD UX Design Certification program in Montréal, Canada, where I discovered that the heart of any good UX approach is user research and design iteration. Long game? To always work with researchers, and maybe one day become one. :)
This site includes snapshots of projects as I originally designed and intended for them to be. As most WordPress web dev goes, a lot of the responsibility post-launch gets handed down to the client to manage their content. In some cases sites degrade because budgets fall flat and staffs struggle internally to integrate high-quality content management.
