My work varies from project managing, designing UX/UI for software solutions, creative direction for web, mobile, and interactive design. In my design process, I start with empathy for the user (user-centric design) and evidence-based design methodologies. Starting with empathy, leads the journey through a thoughtful process to get to the most optimal solution. My drive to design for digital is to be able to reduce and solve for user errors around the world, have designs become inclusive and accessible for all, and to make an impact with my solutions one pixel at a time.

CrowdGuru game application (Mobile)
Role: Design Lead
CrowdGuru connects young students to experienced professionals. Growing up, there wasn't much of a mentor or validation process whenever I had a new idea, ie. How do I start my own business? We were able to partner with great professionals (guru's) to help validate student questions safely and anonymously. The young user asks a question in the community and one of the experts invited to the platform (guru's) can answer and, from that first contact, can become the young user's mentor to help guide them on their curious path.

LMS, Digital Learning Platform (Web + Mobile) for Pearson Education
Role: Creative Director, UI/UX Designer, Project Manager
This interactive tool is based off of the lean model canvas. This canvas is generally used for businesses and is mainly utilized via marker and paper. As I was learning about business operations more, there wasn't many platforms that allowed for an interactive board. I designed this canvas to be fun, engaging, and inviting to all users.
So She Slays (Branding, Web + Mobile)
Role: Creative Director, Designer, Project Manager
So She Slays is a female empowerment blogging site touching on subjects from beauty, health, color, and life stories. I was asked to build the website and branding from the ground up. The challenge was: SSS did not want to look like a standard blogging site with ads and text everywhere. I proposed to use big imagery to highlight their topic sections with a modern look and feel. SSS currently has over 450K engaged followers on their social media platforms.
