About Me

From a young age, I have been driven by creativity, filling notebooks with drawings and using reams of paper to print my Microsoft Paint designs. In middle school, I learned to code, drawn to its potential to bring ideas to life but also to make my AOL profile the coolest. My fascination with technology and its intersection with human experience deepened. This naturally propelled me towards a career in UX design, where I could blend my technical skills with my innate sense of empathy and aesthetics. I have remained committed to refining my craft, constantly seeking innovative ways to enhance user experiences and tackle complex problems.

Project Leadership

I've acted as Lead UX Designer for high-visibility projects overseeing the entire design process.

Diverse Work Experience

My work includes product and web spanning across enterprise, SMB, government, SaaS, and B2B spaces.

Accessibility Focused

I believe accessibility is for everyone and ensure my work adheres to WCAG standards.

Development Knowledge

Coding since middle school, I keep the development process in mind when designing.

Supporting the Future of Work

Workspace Booking for Calendar for a New Way of Working

For organizations adopting the hybrid work model, hot desking and hoteling are two office space management concepts that are becoming increasingly popular. To facilitate this, companies use software solutions that allow employees to book the space they need when they need it. This workspace booking calendar presents the user with a simple but highly informative interface to book their space.

Reducing Distraction Time for Those With Attention Differences

Attentli Mobile App

Reminder apps, alarm apps, and timer apps are commonly used to assist with staying focused and task completion. However, individuals with attention difficulties, such as ADHD, may find these apps less effective. Although these apps can provide initial reminders, they may not provide sufficient accountability for staying focused and completing the task at hand.

In what way can an app offer this accountability? Attentli is designed to use regular sound or vibration reminders at intervals specified by the user to activate memory and help maintain focus.
