My goal as a designer is to provide excellent user experiences. It is important to me that everything I design is both beautiful and easy to use. The challenge of working through a difficult design problem and finding a creative and intuitive solution is one of my favorite parts of the design process. I enjoy the critical thinking involved in interaction design and user experience, as well as the creativity in creating things like infographics, logos and invitations. I am a team-player, collaborative, and appreciate both mentoring and learning from my peers. I am a lover of all things design-related and am continuously educating myself further to stay up-to-date on current trends and technologies.
I live with my husband, dog, and three cats in Salt Lake City, Utah. While I may sit at a desk during the day, I fly through the air at night as a performing aerialist, like something you might see in Cirque Du Soleil. I also have less-exciting hobbies like reading, watching bad television, and spending too much time playing on my iPad.
