Why UI/UX?
Having over a decade of photography and design experience, I wanted to move into a facet of design and creativity I hadn’t yet explored.  I marry my background in serving clients (also graphic design, album design, and commercial real estate marketing and research) with human-centered design to create intuitive and visually appealing solutions.  
I have experience in mobile app, web, and responsive design, as well as designing within a company's brand guidelines.
Collaboration over isolation
A creative and collaborative work environment is my jam but I can work independently as needed.  Collaborative problem solving is a key strength of mine.
I was a competitive swimmer.  We trained hard as a team but essentially each swimmer was responsible for their own race.  The absolute BEST part of a meet day…swimmers gathered at the end of a lane cheering on their teammates.  Each person has to do their part but a strong team is pure magic.
Iteration over ego
My design style can best be described as empathetic, iterative, and intuitive.  I design from the heart and can defend my designs but I'm never afraid to scrap an idea or design if it isn’t truly working.  When it comes to design critique, I set aside my ego and focus on the big picture. Ultimately, it's about the user.
Communication over confusion
I have been on many fast paced and deadline-driven projects over the years (especially in photography, design, and commercial real estate).  I am aware of the communication and organization it takes to be successful; clear communication can avoid a lot of stress and confusion.
I've had exposure to a very broad client base and have a lot of experience working with people of diverse backgrounds.
A little more about me: 
I strive for balance in my life and time outdoors truly recharges my soul.  I have an outgoing spirit but require downtime (reading or watching Ted Lasso).  I'm a creative at heart with analytical tendencies.  At the end of the day, I am eager to do interesting and exciting work I believe in.
I am open to contract, full time, part time, remote, and hybrid opportunities.  I'd be willing to relocate for the right opportunity.
