After working in the design industry for over a decade in both print and digital capacities, I’ve found that I thoroughly enjoy a focus on UI/UX design. My design aesthetic is minimalist and purposeful. In order to achieve clean, dynamic experiences I prefer to stay tightly aligned to brand guidelines and rely on strategic user testing in order to continuously edit and simplify designs.
