What I Do

I love design. As a UI/UX web designer I really enjoy collaborating with a team to create products and solve problems that many times would not have been possible to do as individuals. I strive to bring organization and a keen focus on usability to every project to create an engaging user experience. I am an advocate for standards and best practices.

Technology is constantly evolving and so is how we interact with it. I'm fascinated by the psychology behind design.
