About Me

I am a user-focused designer with experience in identifying and providing solutions for user-identified problems in products. I enjoy translating user research findings by developing prototypes for user testing and designing clean user interfaces. I am an accessibility advocate and work towards making designs that reflect that ideal.

Currently, I am exploring the technical side of UX and UI development by learning JavaScript for user interaction and strengthening my CSS skills to develop user interfaces.
