View Resume

I engineer elegant user interfaces and solve complex design problems.  I don’t believe in just making something beautiful; that’s too easy. I make experiences simple and engaging while keeping the app functional for the user. I am adept at design & truly enjoy creative projects.

Previously I lead a UX Design team at Gap, where we created a more seamless experience for Gap’s global business-to-business promotion management tools. These tools helped Gap design and manage in-store signage, advertisements and promotions for over 3,000 stores worldwide. I then interned at Adobe designing their next-generation product concepts, which allow marketers and designers to collaborate more efficiently on web and application experiences. I worked at Facebook to work on visual design for their F8 conference for Spring 2016. I then worked at Twitter as their freelance user experience designer working on numerous projects for their client base. After, I designed new experiences for Swift Playgrounds as a user experience design intern with Apple. Then, I worked as an interaction designer working on the product page team for Jet with Walmart.com. Currently, I am an interaction designer at Google working on the next generation of Assistant.
