A Little About Me

When I was 13 and I managed to get my hands on my mothers copy of Photoshop, and thus began my love affair with design. As my career has developed, I have found myself to be the kind of designer that holds usability at the forefront of everything I create. I have a passion for making users lives easier through intuitive interactions, simple designs and easy workflows. Armed with a good sense of humor and a ton of empathy, I work with clients and users to create the application they know they want, with the simplicity they need.
