Versatile Product Designer
Web Design Instructor
Recreational Cat Enthusiast
I love analyzing, observing, questioning, negotiating, testing, iterating, sharing, creating, teaching, and leading. Through data-driven designs, strengthening collaboration, and advocating for inclusive products I’d be delighted to bring my expertise to your team! With just a few cat puns here and there.
The Premium Experience
Give educators the support and development they need to have a lasting impact on students’ lives.
Quality product design is the result of a deep understanding of business problems, critical attention to detail of user needs, and a really good chair to sit in for hours in thought.”
– Me, 2020
Evaluate Business Needs & Goals
I initiate conversations about the business needs, user needs, and goals to understand the root of the project.
Research, Research & Research
I start any project by gathering internal research, best practice research, and investigate what additional research methodologies are needed.
By analyzing internal processes and user journeys, I create blueprint mapping exercises on how the project fits into the larger ecosystem.
After discovering the narrative, stretching the imagination, and testing technical limitations, I present visuals of what I think the project should look like as a dream-like state. Knowing not all of it will make the cut.
Evaluating KPIs from a variety of methodologies, we discuss the project performance and how it needs to evolve. The process cycle restarts.

Good design is invisible.
Like opening a door that works without questioning your sanity.”
