I'm a user experience designer based in Chicago with over 8 years of experience designing websites, mobile applications and digital products with a human-centered approach.
I believe in a strong interplay between research and design and use design as a way to navigate messy contexts. I examine existing processes, uncover user painpoints, and sketch and prototype my way to better design solutions.
I graduated with an MS in Human Computer Interaction/design from Indiana University-Bloomington and a BA in Economics and Computer Science from DePauw University.
Used rapid contextual research to drive the re-design of the onboarding process for new venue users for a corporate events marketplace.

Led the interaction design efforts for a global responsive redesign for a diabetes care product.
Injected a needs-based approach into an agile software development process for new products and features for a consumer finance platform.
