I'm non-binary and use they/them pronouns.
I'm a Seattle transplant from San Diego, can you believe I moved here for the weather? I started doing design after I graduated from UCSD with a degree in Psychology and minor in Fine Art. I'm constantly learning and improving my skills in design, development, and UX.
I enjoy sewing, anatomy illustration textbooks, RPGs and D&D, taking my puppy to new dog parks, and brushing up on my EMT-B certification.
I love making a design and seeing it live. Web, mobile app, and product UI are what I do best, along with some front-end dev to get it online. I also enjoy branding and visual identity, logo design, user experience, information architecture, human-computer interaction, and well... anything I can get my hands on.
I've worked in frameworks like Vue.js and Ruby on Rails, preprocessors like Haml, Sass, and Less, and have built my own projects using Bootstrap 4, Grid Systems, and WordPress. I also provide creative direction for a variety of projects including corporate identity, lead capture landing pages, investor and pitch slide decks, and email and ad marketing campaigns.
For me, design is about making terrible first drafts — and then iterating on them until they work. I don't know where I'd be without Photoshop layers, version control, and cmd+z. It's the difference between pixel-pushing until something feels right and having the experience and knowledge to know why.
