I create solutions that make complex concepts simple, easy to understand and fun to use. I bring out the best in collaborators through a process-driven approach. I believe good conversations are the beginnings of great ideas.

Drawing from a background in lab science and teaching, I have a scientific approach to user experience. My path to becoming a User Experience designer derives from my love of science and art. Teaching physics at The Oxbow School, a small art program for 16-18 year olds has taught me that beautiful results come from a strong focus on the process over the finished product. Steven Johnson, a media theorist, has said "Chance favors the connected mind" which resonates with me. I believe the greatest insights happen through conversations.
When I'm not designing, you can find me on the ultimate frisbee field, catching up on science discoveries, seeing live music at small venues in Baltimore, or camping.
