I am experienced in designing comprehensive user experience solutions. My background in human-computer interaction (HCI) is grounded in an interdisciplinary theory that combines psychology, design, and computer science. As such, I approach user experience (UX) differently than a pure designer or computer scientist. This skillset allows me to take on multiple roles and responsibilities as part of a user-centered design approach. I received a master’s degree in Human-Computer Interaction from the University of Maryland and a bachelor’s degree from the University of Wisconsin.

In my spare time, I enjoy traveling, trying new foods, and spending time with my family, especially my nephews and nieces. I also like exploring and becoming lost in Texas!
