For the past five years (2013-17) I have worked for an enterprise technology company that provides SaaS solutions to global customers.
My role as a Sr. Experience Designer was to envision and create a new UX and UI for our product suites. I accomplished these tasks through qualitative and quantitative research, wireframing, prototyping, user testing and some good old fashioned intuition.
Some of the products I worked on include a Digital Experience Platform, Content Manager, Optimization and Personalization Manager, Brand Style Guide, Component System, and Product Demo Experiences.
Envisioning the new product experiences enabled me to wear many hats including ideation and vision, researcher, designer ( Brand, UX, UI ), product manager, front-end developer and design director.

I live and love design. I am blessed with the gift of creativity and the confidence to direct and create experiences. Everything I see I consider the thought behind it and if there is room for improvement. I believe deeply in processes and ways design and development can build better software together.
I've made it my life's work to help market and expand businesses through intelligent design and user experiences, whether they're starting from the ground up or taking a new direction. I take the latest in technology and digital resources and deliver a vision for each of my clients' needs. With over 15+ years in the creative industry, and the second half in leadership and execution of digital product design, I am currently focusing my efforts on reconstructing our planets most desired user experiences.
My experience and knowledge have evolved past the traditional software designer role. I believe with modern day software changing at such a rapid pace traditional software designers must be able to wear multiple hats, solve complex problems and continually adapt to the ever changing landscape. Some call me a multi-tool, the industries definition is a unicorn or full-stack creative, but I believe I'm driven by products and experiences that enhance people's.
I was born and raised just south of Washington, D.C. by my talented parents. Since I can remember art and creativity have been a part of my life. My parents set the foundation of who I am with structure, creativity and focus. My mother has always inspired me with her amazing artwork while my father continues to inspire me with his music and books.
My artwork does not fit into a traditional style but represents a modern artists approach to mixing mediums (canvas, large scale murals, graffiti art, neon and light installations). I like the flexibility of using the best medium to accomplish the task at hand such as painting, craft making, or simply mixing mediums with technology to create immersive installations.
I have shown artwork and created installations for galleries across the U.S in cities such as Washington, D.C., New York, Philadelphia, Ohio, San Francisco and Berlin. I currently reside in and represent a great little neighborhood in Ocean Park, California where I am focusing on combining art with technology to create rich interactive installations focused on 80’s-style experiences.

Similar to pop up dinners I enjoy throwing specialty events. These events showcase my love for combining art and technology to create interactive installations. I envision art shows to be experiences, living pieces of work, instead of traditional nail and hang art. View more.
