Human-Centered Design is my passion. I love transforming ideas, enhancing user needs, and solving work flow issues by testing the Usability and Accessibility of Applications. I specialize in Lean UX practices. I have 10+ years of experience in start-ups and Fortune 500 companies. My expertise lies in Defining Requirements, User Research, Wireframing, Prototyping, User Testing, Visual Design, Front-End Development, Mobile First and Agile Methodology, Team Leading, and Client Communications. I believe simplifying the user-experience and satisfying the user’s needs is ultimately what leads to engagement and customer conversion.

 

My passion for art has led me down many paths in my career. I initially pursued my dream to become an artist. I expressed myself and strived to evoke emotions in others through painting, drawing, videography, photography, and graphic design. These are my roots. Once I became confident in those areas, I decided it was time to bring my art alive. I dove headfirst into the Animation World. I focused on many exciting opportunities creating Animated Websites. As the need for Animations started to fade I turned my focus and began to concentrate on Front-End Development (HTML/CSS), UX, and Visual Design. I feel blessed to say that I have worked at many great places that have given me the experience to succeed in the ever-changing world of technology. When UX began to emerge and the perspective on the importance of “listening to what the user needs” became an important and essential concept, I decided to pursue and grow my experience further by solely focusing on Lean UX.

 

I enjoy all things creative... from fashion, to photography, to gardening, to making food preparations look so good I want to freeze dry them and put them on display. My passion for design has no limits!
