Get to know me.

I focus on product, website, and installation design and have worked with the top digital agencies and design studios for over 8 years - including KBS, SapientNitro, and Method among others. I'm inspired by unique experiences that are carefully crafted to meet their audience expectations. I want to work with clients who truly care about owning digital. My specialties are hands-on Ui/Ux design, rapid prototyping, mentoring, and strategy. I always keep user and business goals as a guiding light for the design process.

My journey began at ITP, dubbed "The Center for the Recently Possible", a two year program at NYU. There I experimented with cameras, sensors, arduino, and webware to help bridge the gap between humans and technoglogy. To this day, I practice design with what I learned at ITP: Play. This translates into being able to observe, empathize, and solve for challenges for brands in creative ways.
