User Experience Design & Strategy

I’m a user experience designer. My goal is to make websites and applications easier for people to use. I’m passionate about making online experiences better. The highest compliment I earn is hearing that people love using a product I worked on or seeing conversions increase after a site launch.

My experience spans corporate and e-commerce websites, product microsites, and complex web applications for consumers and enterprise customers in financial services, healthcare, publishing, education, and computer software. I’ve designed for desktop and mobile devices and I have experience working in both waterfall and agile development processes.

I’ve led products through the whole user experience process — from the kick-off meeting with the product team to launch, including: requirements gathering, UX analysis, design, supporting development and QA, and user testing.
