Hello, I'm a SF-Based Interaction Designer. I Learn, Simplify, and Create Innovative Experiences. 

My background in Information Technology (IT) Support inspired me to solve poor experiences before they reach the end-user.  I iterate and troubleshoot designs constantly to provide the best possible experience.

I believe that good designs flow naturally, intentionally and are striking visually.  I love learning new creative outlets, methods, and processes, from sketching, to illustrating and writing.
