About me

I am a designer with over 10 years of experience, specializing in digital design, marketing, branding, art direction, and project management.

Originally from Pittsburgh, I moved to Ohio to attend THE Ohio State University and graduated Magna Cum Laude with a B.S. in Design. I started my career at an advertising agency, where I eventually became the lead designer and studio manager. I then moved on to Nationwide Insurance, where I worked within their User Experience Department as a web designer and project manager. In 2017, I moved to San Diego, CA where I immersed myself in the world of e-commerce, working at a health & wellness company as a UX/UI designer. More recently I worked in the education technology sector where we used testing and analytics to improve user experience.
I believe in simple, functional design. I was trained in school to make things easy to understand for the user. 3 years with an ad agency taught me to translate that into design that makes the client money. Currently, my focus is on creating positive user experiences on the web while meeting business objectives and maintaining brand consistency.

A few things to know about me

Organized icon

Very organized

Multiple projects and fluctuating timelines make efficiency critical and organization helps drive that. Open up any of my design files and you’ll get a taste of just how organized I am.

Ideas icon

Lots of ideas

Something I am known for is coming up with many ideas for a single project. I love implementing current trends and I’m not afraid of color.

Smiles icon

Smiles often

I believe that it’s important to enjoy what you do and not sweat the small stuff; afterall, it’s just design. You’ll quickly find that I like to laugh a lot (mostly when appropriate).
