The problem-solving approach I use to design user-centered products is passionate, creative, and artistic. I am perceptive, persistent, and compassionate. Reading people, fostering loyalty, and creating trust come naturally to me and I take time to understand a problem and perceive the emotional elements of a situation before acting. With a background in music, a master’s in HCI, and experience as both a Usability Analyst and UX Designer, I bring a unique perspective to the design process.

My passions include: the city of Detroit, the environment, social justice, peace, technology, hockey, movies, music, and mental health. I feel so strongly about mental health issues that I once gave a lightning talk about mindfulness. I also spoke with a friend at MidwestUX 2019 about how UXers can use their skills for social justice projects.

Skills: UX Design, Axure, Usability, Heuristic Evaluation, User Research, User Experience, Wireframing, Prototyping, Analytical Writing, Presentation, Information Architecture, Communication, Problem Solving, PowerPoint, HTML & CSS, Comfort with languages (particularly German)
