I fuse ideas with the physical world.

How can I help?

I have a day job working as a UX/Visual Designer for a nonprofit organization. My full-time job takes up most of my time. However, I do take on freelance work and would be interested in exploring ways that I could help your brand connect with its audience.

UX Design/Consulting

Lets improve customer satisfaction and loyalty by improving the usability, ease of use, and experience that is created by the interaction between your audience and its online offerings.

Brand Consulting

How healthy is your brand? I can help you find what might be missing in order to help your organization connect with target audience.

Visual Design/Consulting

I can help create strong visual content that will help communicate intended messages and connect with your audiences in visually relevant ways.
