With a background in traditional graphic design practices, I’ve grown to specialize in designing empathetic, human-centric experiences in both built & digital environments. My biggest strengths lie in Visual Design (layout, color, illustration, typography) and Systematic Thinking (creating efficient processes to define and build scalable design systems).

Above all else, I want the things I create to be useful—to impact a person's life in a positive way, be it at a big or small scale.

Outside of design, my passions include trying new things that scare me (like getting my motorcycle license), long road trips, outdoor photography, hiking, cycling, and just about anything else you can do in the sunshine.

Oh, and petting every dog I meet. 🐶
