My current focus is in UX/UI design and data visualization, though other roles throughout my career have focused on visual design, video production, photography, motion graphics, and web development. These experiences have led me to take an integrated approach to the interconnected parts that make up the user experience. I’ve been mentoring designers for over 4 years, and can’t wait to help you achieve your goals.
