A view from the Jackson Street bridge of the Atlanta, Georgia city skyline

Reigning from the City in a Forest, Atlanta, Georgia, I'm a product designer, technologist, artist, zinester, teacher, adventurer, and cat mama. You can catch me listening to copious amounts of NPR, cross stitching, exploring the city, and looking for trinkets in antique stores.

One of my biggest passions is making things that evoke emotion and that allow people to express themselves. Whether it’s telling stories through zines; making art, totes, or pins; or taking photographs — my life goal is to create with feeling.

From 9-to-5 I take ideas and turn them into products through data-driven decision making, collaborative ideation, prototyping, testing, and finally development. I have been working with design, development, and technology hand-in-hand for over 10 years. The way humans interact with their devices and how we can use hardware, software, and services to make people more productive has always fascinated me. As such, it has become my focus to create a delightful, efficient, and intuitive user experience in the products I design.

I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Service Design from Savannah College of Art and Design where I spent time concentrating on user experience design, digital services, and industrial design. Currently I work as a Product Designer for Clever Inc., an educational technology company focused on K-12 schools, and as an instructor of UX/UI design and MERN stack web application development boot camps for Georgia Tech.
