About me

I’m highly adept in the organizational skill set required to successfully produce media and user experiences that exceed expectations by establishing and executing plans, and providing detailed analysis and recommendations. I thrive in collaborative, creative, and fast paced environments.
As a dedicated professional with a master’s in digital media design and ten years of experience in project management, event and instructional design, and visual communications, I enjoy applying my experience, education, and creative problem solving skills in the UX product design field.
