📝 Bio
I have a decade long career as an in-house and agency print, branding, web + digital, and product designer.
I lead designers and key initiatives to shape and build enterprise tools for institutional investors at Clearwater Analytics.
I also teach a course on Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) for Boise State University's User Experience Design program in the College of Innovation and Design.

🔎 Interests

A11Y + Inclusive Design
Having a deep understanding of Accessibility and Inclusive design is critical for designers. Understanding how to design for accessibility and with (not for) a diverse set of people is something I strive to improve on.

Design Systems + OOUX
I am dedicated to learning all I can about design systems, object oriented UX, the connected workflow, and how to design at scale. I've applied much of this learning into my work at Clearwater Analytics on the Northfork Design System.

Full Stack Design
I partner with developers often and speak the same language. While I have some skills in CSS, HTML, and JS, I'm expanding my skillset as a designer by completing courses in front-end development from SuperHi.
