User interface design
I love to learn new skills by building things. These are some of the projects that I've been working on in my free time.

I'm an interactive designer with a passion for designing and building things on the web. I've been making stuff for the internet since a young age, and I've come to realize that the way we design for screens has real impact on people's lives. That's why I care about doing things right: making stuff that looks good, works well, and has a positive impact.
I discovered my passion for the way things look and work at Grand Valley State University, where I earned my BFA in Graphic Design. I soon became engrossed in the intersection of design and code—the way they interact with and inform each other has enthralled me since.
While earning my degree, I was a web design intern at Real Art in Chicago, IL and then later a design intern at HAUS in Los Angeles, CA. I now work full time in Chicago with the great folks at Real Art as an Interactive Designer.
