My Work

While my primary role over the past few years has been as a UX Designer and Educator, I continue to work as a visual designer and illustrator.

Projects over the past years range from small business, start-ups, and large-scale businesses. Each project is unique and would enjoy talking more about the roles played, tools used, and lessons learned.

More Content Coming
