My Specialties

I'm a designer, creator, thinker, teammate, organizer, planner, researcher, and more! Here are some fields I specialize in that I can help you with.


Primary and secondary research are more important to a project than the actual look and feel of a product or service. I provide in depth insights to back my design choices and concepts.

Web Design

I’ve designed and built various websites using CMS systems such as Squarespace, WordPress, Wix, and Shopify. I’ve also custom built websites using HTML5, CSS3, and jQuery.

UI/UX Design

I have a passion for creating unique and meaningful experiences for people both online and offline. Simplifying complex systems with a team is exhilarating to me.


In a team setting, I believe open communication is the key to a successful project. Having an open mind and creating a supportive environment allows team members to work collaboratively.
