I'm a Digital Product Designer currently living in Louisville, Kentucky. I graduated from the University of Cincinnati's College of Design, Architecture, Art and Planning (DAAP) with a Bachelor's of Science in Design.
So far I have built my career in a variety of roles and industries that have broadened my skills to be able to handle tough design tasks in various situations and delivery implementations.
My work experience ranges from a Fortune 100 company in the healthcare industry, to a fast-paced daily news organization, to Fortune 500 companies with "billion dollar brands" and small companies/agencies with national design campaigns.
I thrive in a fast-paced work environment and enjoy collaboration in every step of the design process. In my current organization, I'm a change-agent trying to implement a user-centric design process and a leader striving to facilitate innovation.
As a Digital Product Designer, I am often responsible for shaping and communicating user experience strategies and design. I often serve as the team advisor responsible for defining the overall UX vision throughout the digital ecosystem. I play a critical role in driving the overall UX practice, help to develop team capabilities, work as a user-centric design evangelist and thought leader.
Up to this point, my career has led me to establish a core set of skills that I practice each day.
I strive to create an environment where people on my team feel heard and valued—with a focus on personal/career growth. I encourage collaboration with a mindset that it's better to fail fast and learn along the way.
I enjoy approaching a user experience with a holistic mindset and translating that vision into a meaningful product strategy. Partnering with stakeholders we can ensure that design meets, and exceeds, established business key perforance indicators (KPIs).
Focusing on how people interact with products, and ensuring that design solutions are consistent, meaningful, accessible and inclusive.
Emotion is encapsulated within motion. When motion is incorporated thoughtfully into design it can take an experience from useful to delightful.
I've spent my career wearing many hats within the design industry, and I picked up a broad range of skills along the way.
