About
me

Hi there!

I recently graduated from the University of Washington’s Masters of Human-Computer Interaction and Design (MHCI+D) program.

I made this personal portfolio to document my design process for potential employers and personal retrospection.

I have a background in psychology and a knack for understanding complex systems and communicating their nuances through story telling. In 2015, I was introduced to UX design while working at CGI Federal. I was not initially hired to do design work, but due to my graphic design experience and academic background in psychology, UX proved to be a natural fit.

Ever since, I have dedicated myself to building interfaces that go beyond capturing attention, seeking to drive positive change in individuals and society.
