UX Designer

USER EXPERIENCE DESIGN

I work through projects from initial concepts to development. My strength lies in being able to see the ‘big picture' as well as the nuances that make a great product. I have a deep understanding of the design process from research to design to development. I’ve worked in responsive web and in both Android and iOS for over 4 years, and have experience working in an agile process. I am able to communicate design ideas across cross-functional teams to gather requirements, meet business objectives, while being an advocate for the user.
