Creative Visual Thinker

I have a broad design background in both digital and traditional design, including UI/UX, visual design, graphic design, illustration and fine art. I’m passionate about applying the principles of design thinking to help clients explore and solve problems, simplify complex information, and deliver superior user experiences. I do my best work in highly collaborative, design-centric work environments. Next to my computer, my favorite design tools are a fresh pack of dry erase pens, a mini whiteboard, and a stack of post-it notes, as I believe using visuals to help people see, understand and react to a design challenge is the fastest path to solving it. My favorite phrase is, “Ah, now I understand!”
