Armed with a degree in industrial design and a minor in computer science, I thrive in environments where I can work within cross-disciplinary teams and leverage user-centered design methodologies to solve interesting problems.
I am currently a UX Designer at SunTrust, where I work to make banking faster and more flexible for small and midsize businesses and enterprises. Before joining SunTrust, I worked at CareerBuilder where I worked closely with a small group of amazing researchers and strategists as we sought to make the job hunting and hiring processes more manageable and motivating.
I am closely involved in both my local UX community and the UX community at large. In fact, I am a contributing writer for the Mixed Methods podcast blog, and I am am an active member of various design and research Slack groups.
In my free time, I enjoy watching films, eating sushi, people-watching, and answering design-related questions on Quora.
