Hi hi! I'm a designer with over 10 years of experience working with product development teams in the trenches. Before I became a UX/UI designer, I held roles in web content production, product management, and project management, and I've worked on digital products at major corporations, agencies, and startups alike. 

My career in digital started at Viacom, where I managed the web and mobile content for MTV, VH1, and Logo’s websites respectively, including the award-winning “RuPaul’s Drag Race.” (Shantay, you stay!) Now as a UX/UI designer, I continue my mission to craft meaningful, usable, and useful experiences for all types of users. 

My product design experience spans a wide range of web and mobile platforms. I've worked on apps for The Wall Street Journal to help readers digest their news in an easy, intuitive way; a personal finance app at LearnVest, which teaches users how to budget and adjust their spending habits; and the settings for an augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) device, which helps speech therapists become more efficient in teaching language to their patients. After freelancing for nearly three years working with startup and enterprise clients, I'm now at Google as part of the design team for Google Maps.

Outside of work, I enjoy teaching and mentoring other career changers switching to UX. I also love running, playing flag football, grinding in RPGs, rooting for the New Jersey Devils (sigh), sketching and doodling, seeing live bands, traveling with my partner, and constantly petting my manic-but-adorable Boston Terrier/Frenchie mix. Oh, and don't confuse me with my identical twin sister!

Born in New York City and raised in Tampa, Queens is now my home base.

Get in touch and say hello!
