Bio

I've been working as a designer for over six years. For the last two years, I've been working at Texas State University — improving internal systems for a better student enrollment experience.

In 2015, I attended the Iron Yard design program in Austin, TX where I kick-started my design career. Since then, I have learned a lot of processes, concepts, and theories of UX/UI and product design. I’ve also had the opportunity to work with many great mentors, attend workshops, and have read numerous blogs and tutorials. I enjoy sharing all that I can with others and love collaborating. I am very much a big-picture thinker and enjoy working on products end to end, from ideation all the way to development.
