I am a Full-Stack UX Designer living in the SF bay area. I conduct research, architect and plan large CMS websites, wrangle scopes and clients, create visual design compositions, and write/launch production ready front-end code. I am a user-centered interaction designer, front-end developer, and design thinker. I've taken numerous projects from concept/kickoff through to implementation/launch.

UX Design Immersive

During Summer 2014 I was lucky enough to be able to participate in a ten week, full-time, immersive course specifically focused on User Experience (UX) design. The course is crafted by top practitioners in the field, with a specific focus on honing students in their path to a UX design career. Through 400+ hours of face-to-face instruction, presentations, discussions, guest lectures, interactive lessons, real-world client projects, and personable mentoring, the course provided a rounded understanding of the entire UX process. The focus was on core skills, tools, and intensive design sprints encompassing the entire user experience design process. From research and ideation to prototyping and testing, we solved design problems utilizing a industry-proven set of skills and methods.
