My Background

I’m a UX designer with a background in Linguistics and Russian Studies. I began my professional career working at an audio book production studio.

Why Design?

My twin brother has autism. Experiencing the life-changing impact technology has made in his life inspired me to pursue design.

I Believe

Giving back to my community is important. Through Catch-a-Fire, I completed  two non-profit website redesign projects (pro-bono & solo!).

In My Spare Time...

You can find me climbing (didn’t say I was good at it) or looking for the best Chai Latte in Denver.

What I've Been Up To

My most recent work stint is with Syracuse Jewish Family Service (SJFS) where I re-designed their website covering the entire design process from problem discovery to implementation. Working as the sole/lead designer for this non-profit taught me how to balance business goals and engineering constraints as I advocated for the user.

With a belief that design is  equitable, thoughtful, and fun I enjoy creating partnerships with stakeholders, and establishing trust and accountability in the work that I do.
