This is me!

I'm a UX-UI designer based in Maryland that's constantly trying to learn and improve my skills. I aim to create useable and enjoyable products that help people get things done easily.

How I Got Here?

Prior to my switch into UX, I was a bartender and a software development student at UMGC (formerly UMUC). Being a bartender has allowed me to communicate with a variety of people to understand their needs so that I can get exactly what they're asking for. My time as a software development student has given me insight on the more technical side of development and has allowed me an understanding of the process from beginning to end.
As a UX Designer, I enjoy knowing that every problem is going to need a different way to approach it and it's up to me to figure out how to approach it. Being able to mesh the analytical and creative parts of my brain is what makes me happy and part of the reason I pivoted into this field.
