About

I'm a Product Designer currently based in Brooklyn, NY. I approach things as a problem solver and focus on ensuring that every experience is simple and intuitive for the user. I'm particularly interested in the organization of information and find an odd amount of joy in IA and content management for websites. 

I have created a wide range of experiences including iOS/Android applications, responsive websites, campaign pages and an Intranet.

If you've read this far, you might be wondering why I included a job from 2011 on my resume. The college I attended included a large number of Deaf or Hard of Hearing students. My experience seeing the necessary accommodations (note taking, captions, interpreters) made more of aware of accessibility and creating experiences that did not exclude anyone. I firmly believe this background has helped to this day when approaching projects that will be seen by a diverse audience.
