About Me

My Professional Story

I am a UX Designer with nearly a decade of experience in research, marketing, and sales. I am striving to combine my research skills, creativity, and communication skills into one fulfilling career.

I began my career while receiving an undergraduate degree in Marketing at Purdue University. During that time I wrote for the sports desk at the local newspaper, studied abroad in Brazil where I received my minor in Portuguese, and was involved in local and national philanthropies.

A little more than a year after working in PR for a law firm, I decided to continue my love for adventure and move to Australia on a one-year working holiday visa. There I expanded on my communication skills working in event promotion, lead generation, and account management.

I strive for innovative ideas with sound UX research and interactive design fundamentals. I am motivated by unique challenges, transformative technology, and most importantly finding the ‘sweet spot between the user’s needs and business’ goals.

Hobbies and Interests

I consider myself an adventurous person. I have visited over 26 countries which includes working and studying in Australia on two separate occasions, studying abroad in Brazil, and volunteering in Thailand, Cambodia and Romania. I also enjoy most sporting events, gaming, the outdoors, and extreme sports like surfing and snowboarding. I am also a PADI Advanced Open Water Diver.
