The interaction between people and technology is what drives my work. In design, people are always part of the equation, so they influence every step of my process. I love to identify opportunities to improve ease of use, with an end goal of creating an optimal user experience.
My mission: To create above-and-beyond digital experiences that have a transformative impact on people’s lives.
Here's where I've been so far:
I discovered my passion for design and tech while studying graphic design in college. Through my undergraduate studies, I came to understand that design is a superpower: it transforms concepts into reality, and fundamentally affects human experience. After mastering “design thinking” through that program, I realized how well those concepts translated into the development of digital products. After graduating, I knew that I wanted to identify opportunities to further explore the relationship between design, technology, and people. Energized by that possibility, I moved into several design internships that also provided an opportunity to develop a strong set of coding skills. After joining the team at Real Art, I discovered that I had enough coding expertise to succeed in front-end development projects in addition to design.
While I primarily consider myself to be an interactive designer, my experience in the field has broadened my awareness of how a designer can contribute. Designing, coding, and developing strategy can all be part of a designer's role, and I thrive in a position where I can contribute to multiple stages of the design and implementation process.
