I'm a UI/UX Designer & Frontend Developer from Chicago, IL. I aim to make a difference through my creative solutions.
I have experience working on projects with teams to create user-friendly and appealing application interfaces and websites. Working with project managers, business analysts and information architects has given me a wide range of skills. My experience creating rough mock-ups and prototypes that are refined and extended over many iterations allows me to solve complex user experience issues quickly.
