 UX Designer

In Training

 

My heart is to make lasting, meaningful moments that spark imagination and awe

to think deeply about core values that motivate and inspire

To choose conversations over stubbornness; productivity over idleness; friends over strangers; laughter over sterility

To choose design, because I have a profound intolerance for things that don’t work; and, it’s a healthier alternative to complaining.

I UNABASHEDLY CHOOSE 
TO MAKE MY WORLD BETTER

Projects

A Work In Progress

"Fail big, fail often" is the common mantra echoed in the HCI/d program at Indiana University; and, I have come to fully embrace its message. I feel exceedingly privileged to work  alongside such a wide breadth of talents and to receive mentorship from such accomplished alumni. Below, I've highlighted projects from this past year, giving special attention to the skills most improved and lessons learned in their production.

Photography

serious hobbyist

When I lived in Orlando, FL I founded a photography company that specialized in updating model portfolios for those switching from the fashion industry to commercial.

Additionally, I've produced commissioned prints of abstract scenes and explosive macro imagery. Experimenting in macro photography is perhaps my biggest hobby.

In fall of 2014, I was part of a team of two other students that took and edited over 100 graduate HCI/d portraits at the School of Informatics at Indiana University.
